About me

  • After completing a PhD at University of Sussex in 1984, I had two postdoc periods, First at Imperial College of Science, Technology and Medicine, London, UK (1984-88) and then at Karolinska Institutet (1988-92). I was Assistant Professor (forskarassistent) in Molecular Medicine at KI (1992-96) and became docent in Molecular Biology in 1992. After a short period as a senior researcher I left KI and became one of the founding members of the new Science Faculty at Södertörn University (SH). I was professor of Molecular Biology at SH (1998-2010) until I moved back to a professorship in the same discipline at KI. At present I work with research in cancer cell molecular and cellular biology, supervision of graduate students and education of medical and biomedical analyst students during their examensarbete course.
