  • New findings on disease risk after early heart surgery

    [21 Feb 2018] Infections and autoimmune diseases are more common among people who have undergone heart surgery as children and had their thymus removed at the same time, which is often done to get access to the heart. This is evident in a study published in The Journal of Allergy and Clinical Immunology.

  • Chalmers and the University of Gothenburg Intensifying Sustainable Development Cooperation

    [20 Feb 2018] Chalmers University of Technology and the University of Gothenburg have signed a renewed collaboration agreement for sustainable development, which also implies a new plan for the joint organisation named the Centre for Environment and Sustainability. The new agreement encompasses a broader approach that covers all aspects of sustainable development with a clearer focus on the United Nation´s 17 global sustainable development goals. The organisation will also be renamed Gothenburg Centre for Sustainable Development.

  • Researchers concerned about plastic consumption

    [20 Feb 2018] We are exposured to microplastics from our surroundings, and probably at much higher levels than those found in individual food items or drinking water. This has been shown by a new study in which researchers from the University of Gothenburg have participated. The researchers are now calling for a discussion about the consequences of the total global consumption of plastics.

  • New structure discovered in human sperm tails

    [14 Feb 2018] A highly effective tail is needed in order for a sperm to be able to swim, and for a baby to be conceived. By using cryo-electron tomography, researchers at the University of Gothenburg - working in partnership with researchers in the USA - have identified a completely new nanostructure inside sperm tails.

  • The plastics industry is leaking huge amounts of microplastics

    [14 Feb 2018] Millions of plastic pellets are leaking out into the environment from a manufacturing site in Stenungsund. This has been shown by a new study conducted by researchers at the University of Gothenburg. Despite several international and national sets of regulatory frameworks, the leaking continues.

  • New discovery offers hope of protecting premature babies from blindness

    [9 Feb 2018] Now there is hope of a new way to protect extremely premature babies from impaired vision or blindness resulting from the eye disease retinopathy of prematurity (ROP). A study at Sahlgrenska Academy published in JAMA Ophthalmology points to a clear link between ROP and low levels of the fatty acid arachidonic acid, measured in children¿s blood.

  • Low muscle strength identified as early risk factor for ALS

    [2 Feb 2018] Low muscle strength during the later teen years has been identified as a risk factor for much later onset of the neurological disease known as ALS, or amyotrophic lateral sclerosis. A study at Sahlgrenska Academy published in the Journal of Neurology also links low blood counts at a young age to ALS.

  • Protracted problems walking among hip surgery patients

    [24 Jan 2018] People who have undergone hip surgery with total hip arthroplasty often experience no difficulty in walking - but for some, mobility actually is impaired long after surgery. Research under way at Sahlgrenska Academy is focusing on how advanced motion analysis can lead to improvements for patients.
