Simon Isaksson

Researcher at Chalmers, Physics, Biological Physics

In September 2013, Simon Isaksson started as a PhD student at Chalmers University of Technology. The PhD project is one of the projects conducted within the M.A. Research group with associate professor Martin Andersson (Applied surface chemistry, Chalmers) as the main supervisor and professor Fredrik Höök (Biological Physics, Chalmers) as the co-supervisor.The aim of the project is to develop a water treatment device that mimics the cell membrane in order to achieve an energy efficient and highly water selective treatment process. This is done by reconstituting transmembrane water-channeling proteins called aquaporins into lipid bilayers deposited on a mesoporous support material.By taking advantage of the inherent impermeability of the cell membrane, the biomimetic water treatment membrane will be able to remove even small molecules like pharmaceutical waste and hormone-like substances from the water to be treated.
