Head of Grants Office at Karolinska Institutet.
I am leading a unit with highly qualified staff that represent a strong mix of capabilities within scientific research and administration, scientific writing, communication and knowledge within the domains of the European Union and other international and national funding bodies.
Working in the borderland of academia and life science industry I have over the years gained a deep knowledge in the various national and European funding programs.
Over the past 15 years, I have work in, and in support of, innovation driven research and its financing. I graduated 1994 in Molecular Pharmacology at the University of Lund followed by postgraduate training 1995-2000 at Karolinska Institutet where I received a doctorate degree in Neuropharmacology. After two years post-doc supported by the Swedish Brain foundation, I joined Biovitrum AB where I worked 2003-2005 with target validation and assay development. In 2005-2012 I worked for Actar AB where main responsibilities included in-licensing evaluation and due diligence of research projects, management and research strategy. Other major duties included project evaluation and planning, infrastructure build-up and recruitment. At SwedenBIO my main tasks was to to help Swedish Life Science SMEs obtain funding from the EU's Framework Program (FP7) for Research and Technological Development, providing information, advice and to identify relevant calls.
Specialties: Drug Discovery and development in the pharmaceutical industry; Target validation and assay development, soft money, funding, grant applications, EU's Framework Program (FP7) and Horizon 2020.
