Derek Logan (chair)

Division of Biochemistry and Structural Biology, Dept. of Chemistry, Lund University

Swedish national delegate in ESUO

Member of ESUO executive board (secretary)

Prof. Derek Logan's research focuses on elucidating structure-function relationships in

biological macromolecules, with especial focus on ribonucleotide reductases and the

galectin family. As well as synchrotron techniques such as protein crystallography and

small angle X-ray scattering, he has also applied neutron crystallography and cryo-EM.

He worked for 15 years as a part-time beamline scientist at the old MAX-lab in Lund.

Martin Beye

Dept. of Physics, Stockholm University

Martin Beye uses and develops soft x-ray spectroscopy methods at many free-electron

lasers and at synchrotrons around the world. He is in charge of the scientific program

around several flexible end stations at different facilities and develops further

instruments. His main research focuses on the basics of heterogeneous catalysis

as well as dynamics in quantum materials.

Ute Cappel

Dept. of Physics and Astronomy, Uppsala University

Ute Cappel is associate professor and fellow of the Wallenberg Initiative Materials

Science for Sustainability at the Department of Physics and Astronomy at Uppsala

University. She uses synchrotrons for characterization of solar cell materials, in

particular using photoelectron spectroscopy and time-resolved photoelectron


Martin Magnuson

Dept. of Physics, Chemistry & Biology, Linköping University

Martin Magnuson is Associate Professor/Biträdande Professor at the Thin Film

Physics Group, Department of Physics, Chemistry and Biology (IFM), Linköping

University. He is a frequent user of several beamlines at the MAX IV Laboratory,

e.g., for RIXS, XANES, EXAFS, XPS and diffraction measurements. Materials of

current interest are new 2D materials called MXenes, 2D borides, minerals, and

amorphous carbides.

Pål Stenmark

Dept. of Biochemistry & Biophysics, Stockholm University

Prof. Pål Stenmark's research focuses on questions related to human health using

structural biology, biochemistry, molecular biology and biophysics. Even though the

research often originates from structural discoveries and/or questions, his group uses a

multitude of additional methods. Currently the Stenmark group's research focuses

on two main areas important to human health:

  1. The Clostridial neurotoxins - deadly toxins that also can heal
  2. Novel cancer targets in nucleotide metabolismand DNA repair
