1. Pro-environmental travel behavior : The importance of attitudinal factors, habits, and transport policy measures
Sammanfattning : The aim of this thesis was to study determinants of a readiness for pro-environmental travel behavior in households. Four empirical studies were conducted examining reduction in car use (Study I), acceptability of transport policy measures (Study II and III), and behavioral adaptations in response to travel demand management (TDM) measures (Study IV).

2. Synthesising colloidal molecules with tunable interactions from soft responsive microgel particles
Sammanfattning : Colloidal self-assembly is an attractive bottom-up approach to new superstructures and materials with new properties. However, the typical spherical shape and isotropic interaction potential limit the repertoire of ordered structures that can be obtained from synthetic colloids. LÄS MER
Sammanfattning : Viruses have developed several strategies to evade the complement system, a part of the immune system. The fourth open reading frame of the human virus Kaposi's sarcoma-associated herpesvirus (KSHV) encodes a type 1 transmembrane protein. LÄS MER
4. Novel findings on cellular trafficking and targeting for granule storage of neutrophil elastase, a multifunctional effector molecule of innate immunity
Sammanfattning : Neutrophil elastase (NE) has important roles in innate immunity, killing pathogens and controlling the immune response; but how NE is targeted to developing granules is not understood. Therefore, the aim of this thesis was to investigate the sorting of NE. LÄS MER
5. Water treatment using cryogel-based adsorbents - Targeting environmental pollutants at low concentrations
Sammanfattning : The lack of safe, clean water is strongly linked to poverty, underdevelopment and poor health. Water is needed not only to sustain life, but to produce food and in industrial processes. Anthropogenic pollution and natural events can jeopardize access to safe water. LÄS MER
