The ESTRID study has its core at the Institute of Environmental Medicine at Karolinska Institutet, Stockholm, Sweden but we have a close collaboration with Lund University Diabetes Center and Uppsala University.
Sofia is associate professor in epidemiology at Karolinska Institutet. Her main area of interest is risk factors for adult onset diabetes such as type 2 diabetes and LADA.
Leif is professor in endocrinology at Lund University and chief responsible for the ANDIS registry. Leif's main area of interest is how genetic factors influence the risk of developing diabetes as well as the treatment of diabetes.
Anders is a medical doctor and senior lecturer. He is project leader and medically responsible for the ANDIS registry.
Per-Ola is professor in endocrinology and diabetology at Uppsala University and chief responsible for the ANDiU registry. Per-Ola's main research area is stem cell treatment with the aim to cure or delay the development of diabetes.
Mats is a medical doctor and also has a doctor's degree. He defended his thesis at Uppsala University. He is project leader and medically responsible for the ANDiU registry.
Miranda is the research assistant and contact person for the study participants in the ESTRID study. She manages the data collection, is responsible for sending out surveys, manages the database, answers questions from participants and keeps in touch with the ANDIS register. Miranda holds a master's degree in global public health.
Bahareh wrote her doctoral thesis on alcohol and tobacco consumption and the risk of developing LADA. She has a master's degree in public health nutrition and a doctor's degree in medical science. Currently, she is a post doc at Harvard University, Boston, USA.
Josefin Edwall Löfvenborg
Josefin has defended her doctoral thesis at Karolinska Institutet and is now a postdoc. Her research is based on ESTRID material and focuses on diet and the risk of developing LADA and type 2 diabetes. She also has a master's degree in nutrition.
Jessica is a PhD student in the ESTRID study. Her project focuses on tobacco use, antibiotic use and previous infections as well as how the interaction between these factors and genetic risk factors affects the risk of developing LADA and type 2 diabetes. Jessica holds a degree in public health science.
Anna-Maria Lampousi is a PhD student in the ESTRID group. Her project aims to clarify the influence of diet, including its interaction with genetic factors, on the risk of LADA, type 1, and type 2 diabetes. Anna-Maria holds a master's degree in epidemiology and a bachelor's degree in nutrition and dietetics.
Yuxia Wei is a PhD student in the ESTRID study. One important aspect of her PhD project is to investigate risk factors over the life course for diabetes with and without an autoimmune component, leveraging different types of data (questionnaires, registers, genomic and metabolomic data, et al) and different methods for causal inference including Mendelian randomization and family-based study designs. In her PhD study, she also focuses on the prognosis of different types of diabetes in adults, especially autoimmune diabetes. Yuxia holds a master's degree in epidemiology and health statistics.
Cornelia is a postdoc in the ESTRID group. Her project focuses on autoimmune diseases and diabetes. Cornelia holds a degree in public health.
Emmy is a PhD student in the ESTRID group. Her projects investigate how tobacco use and early life factors affect the risk of developing LADA, type 1 diabetes and different subgroups of type 2 diabetes, and how they interact with genetic factors. Emmy holds a master's degree in biomedicine.
Coralie is a postdoctoral researcher in the ESTRID group specialising in diabetes epidemiology with a focus on early determinants of metabolic health. Coralie also has a clinical background as an endocrinologist and an interest in clinical research on therapeutic education and real-world use of treatments and new technologies in diabetes.
