Alf Månsson's Biography



Alf Månsson, Professor, Linnaeus University and Lund University Sweden

Alf Månsson is Professor of Physiology at Linnaeus University and affiliate member of the Nano-Lund research center at Lund University. He is an expert on myosin motor proteins and actin filaments of muscle, studying their functional properties using a range of biophysical techniques and modeling. He is also using these proteins in nanotechnological applications, from materials characterization, over biosensing to biocomputation. Dr. Månsson leads a small research team of HQP at Linnaeus University and is CEO of the start-up ActoSense Biotech AB. He has published almost 70 peer-reviewed papers, given 15 invited presentations, and been awarded 3 patents in nanobiotechnology.

Actin and myosin are the contractile proteins underlying muscle contraction and key aspects of motile phenomena in non-muscular cells. Here, I report how isolated contractile proteins are used on flat surfaces and in nanofabricated networks for applications in biosensing and biocomputation. More specifically, the motor system underlies transportation of analytes for biocomputation, nanoseparation and concentration at a nanoscale detector as well as biomarker-detection by aggregation of actin filaments.
