Engineering Sciences in Chemistry, Biotechnology and Health (CBH)
Welcome to the internal pages for employees at the School of Chemistry, Biotechnology and Health (CBH) at KTH. Note that the menu for KTH's overall intranet can be found above in the header.
KTH information regarding COVID-19
Remote work. Where the manager assesses it possible to work from home it should be considered until 31 January 2022.
Studies and exams. KTH has already taken measures that are in line with the government's stricter recommendations that apply from 23 December 2021. For KTH, these mean that teaching continues on Campus, but infection control measures should be applied.
Meetings and events. KTH's teaching and research are not affected, but conferences, open lectures, concerts and more where the public has access are effected by increased restrictions for public events and gatherings held indoors from 23 December.
When assessing hazards of metals, alloys, and metal-containing items, the metal release (bioaccessibility) is of high importance. Triggered by increasingly stricter hazard classifications for metals, especially cobalt (Co), and limited knowledge, the aim of Xuying Wang's doctoral thesis is to assess correlations between the metal/alloy surface characteristics, corrosion and metal release pattern in different simulated biological fluids relevant to human exposure scenarios.
"Human exposure to metal-containing products and particles via different exposure routes including skin contact, ingestion, or inhalation, unavoidably occurs in daily life and during occupational activities."
John Löfblom new Programme Director for MSc Medical Biotechnology
Since the beginning of November 2021, Professor John Löfblom is the new Programme Director for the Master’s programme Medical Biotechnology. He is looking forward to being part of the development of the programme.
“I have always taken a great interest in education, and I hope and think that the role as Programme Director will suit me, and that I can contribute to the continuing development of MSc Medical Biotechnology.”
The number of Lifelong Learning courses (LLL) are increasing at CBH. A new working group has been formed in order to discuss and handle all matters of LLL. A new e-mail address has been created for contact in all LLL matters.
“We can see an increased amount of LLL courses, which is good news," says Per Berglund, professor and Lifelong Learning coordinator at CBH.
The CBH School works actively for a sustainable development on several levels. Our research and education contribute to the UN Sustainable Development Goals, we have an environmental management system and is a workplace that strives for increased sustainability in our daily processes.
