Research description

I’m leading a research group of 10 researchers devoted to neural repair/stem cell biology.

The group is studying how inflammation affects the stem cells and how healing can be encouraged in patients with MS by using the nervous system's own stem cells.

I have supervised five PhD students and been co-supervisor for three PhD students. Right now I am main supervisor for two PhD students, co-supervisor for three PhD students and main supervisor for three postdocs. 

I have acted as opponent 3 times and participated in the dissertation board on 22 occasions.
