Multitechnology, registries and other resources


In addition to infrastructures for bioimaging, protein and genes & cells, we also provide other resources e.g., databases, networks and specialized labs.

Below you can see some examples of other infrastructure available for researchers at Lund University.

CBT Small Molecule Screening infrastructure

The CBT (Chemical Biology & Therapeutics) small molecule screening infrastructure enables the use of screening technology as well as expertise and reagents to help researchers at Lund University towards new discoveries in fundamental aspects of biology. The infrastructure is not limited to drug discovery but can be used by any researcher to quickly conduct hundreds of biochemical, genetic or pharmacological tests. The library contains annotated molecules with known biological activities, a powerful tool to identify novel mechanisms and pathways, several of the molecules are approved drugs or molecules that have been in the clinic, which might facilitate translation of early discoveries to human studies. In addition, included are also non-target biased commercial compounds and academic compounds, in total 10000 compounds.

EpiHealth Cohort Study

EpiHealth cohort study is a national resource investigating the interaction between genes and life-style factors regarding the development of common diseases seen in the elderly. At present (2017) it includes 25,000 Swedish men and women between the ages of 45 and 75 years, new subjects are recruited continously. It is an open-access resource accessible for all researchers.

The aim of the study is to map the causes of our most common diseases, like heart and vascular disease, cancer, osteoporosis, depressions, diabetes, obesity, dementia etc. The study includes data of cardiovascular status, lung and cognitive function and biobanking, lifestyle factors and environmental exposure.

Health Science Lab (at the Health Science Center and Gerdahallen)

At Health Science Center you can test:

  • Muscular function, strength and endurance with Biodex
  • Muscular activity with EMG
  • Submaximal exercise capacity on ergometer cycles
  • Physical activity with accelerometers

At Gerdahallen you can test:

  • Maximal exercise and submaximal exercise capacity on ergometer cycles or treadmill incl. measurements with ergospirometer.
  • ECG or heart rate monitored with Polar pulse equipment.
  • Analyze of running technique

LUPOP (Lund University Population Research Platform)

LUPOP is an open resource available for all researchers at Lund University. LUPOP provides support for population based research, such as advice on study design and scientific approaches, applications for funding and data access within population research, and ethical and legal issues. Through the website www.lupop.lu.se, researchers and students can keep updated with the latest within population based research. The website can also be used by researchers at Lund University to provide information to colleagues, students, media, and the public.

Molecular Recognition in Life (MoReLife) is a network, which aims to promote development and coordination of competences of use to life science researchers at Lund University. MoReLife is a network distributed mainly over the faculties of Science, Medicine and Engineering. MoReLife arranges meetings, seminars, discussion sessions and similar to promote interaction between different competence groupings and centra, infrastructure facilities, and researchers in Life Science.
