Professor of hematology at the Department of Medicine, Huddinge since 2009.
The word haematology comes from the Greek words haima (blood) and logia (knowledge). The term thus denotes the study of the blood, the organs that form the blood, and blood diseases.
Eva Hellström-Lindberg's research concerns myelodysplastic syndrome, a disease of the bone marrow (myelos) that causes the blood cells to be either malformed (dysplasia) or immature. The word "syndrome" means that several conditions are involved.
