Georgia has successfully graduated from the group with a licentiate degree from KTH. She successfully defended her thesis called “Investigating mucin interactions with diverse surfaces for biomedical applications” on the 6th of May 2019.

Georgia has been working over the past two years on building materials made out of mucins or interacting with mucins. Her work led to the publication of two of our latest papers. One on silk-based mucoadhesive materials, and the other in collaboration with the group of Prof Oliver Lieleg (TUM, Germany) on mucin coating lubricity.

We thank her opponent Prof. Anette Larsson (Chalmers), the internal examiner and advanced reviewer Eva Blomberg (KTH) and the chair Qi Zhou (KTH) for their participation in the defense.

You can find Georgia’s thesis on the Diva website.
