Strøm, Morten Bøhmer


Professor, Vice-dean Research and Innovation

Job description

Morten B. Strøm is Vice-dean Research and Innovation at the Faculty of Health Sciences. He is a professor in medicinal chemistry at the Department of Pharmacy, Natural Products and Medicinal Chemistry Research Group. His research involves development of peptides and peptidomimetics with activity against resistant bacteria and with activity against cancer cells. Together with other research groups at UiT we are studying how these molecules can be developed into future drug candidates and drug formulations. This has given important experience with innovation, patents, and commercialization.

Professor at the Natural Products and Medicinal Chemistry Research Group.
