Cellwall research in the north of Sweden

Welcome to

About Us In a Few Words

The Cava lab aims at deciphering new knowledge on one of the most remarkable structures of bacteria - their cell wall – both to provide answers to scientific fundamental questions and to improve our options to combat long-standing and emerging infectious diseases. We have launched an integrative research program to uncover and exploit the unnoticed variability of the bacterial cell wall. This investigation is imperative for a realistic understanding of cell wall biology in nature, in particular its role in environmental adaptation and signalling.

Our Location

We are located on floor 3 in the department of molecular biology at Umeå University.
