Professor Emeritus
Department of Biomaterials

Gothenburg, Sweden

Tomas Albrektsson, RCPSG, started working at the laboratories of P I Brånemark in 1967. Albrektsson has devoted his research career to osseointegrated oral, craniofacial and orthopaedic implants. His present research is centered on reasons for marginal bone loss around oral implants that largely depends on immunological reactions rather than being a replica of disease around teeth. Implants are very different from teeth. Albrektsson is presently professor emeritus of Gothenburg UNiversity and he serves as visiting professor of Malmö University, Sweden.
