  • * Associate Professor of Experimental Pathology at Karolinska Institutet.
    * Deputy Senior Consultant in Surgical Pathology, Karolinska University
    Hospital, Stockholm, Sweden with special focus on endocrine pathology.
    * Bachelor of Science in Molecular Biology, Stockholm University, Stockholm,
    * Project group leader for research team investigating genetical mechanisms
    underlying endocrine tumorigenesis.
    * Previously /visiting research scholar /at Yale School of Medicine, New
    Haven, CT, USA (2013-2014).
    * Awarded the M.D. Ph.D Scholarship at Karolinska Institutet, Stockholm,
    Sweden in 2005. The grant is equvalent of financing of a PhD student
    for four years.

    * Awarded the Junior Clinical Investigator Award from The Swedish Cancer
    Society (grant covering half-time salary for research from 2017
    to 2022).

  • My project group is investigating the genetical mechanisms which propel the
    development of cancer in hormone-secreting organs such as the thyroid,
    parathyroids and adrenal glands. By utilizing modern molecular techniques to
    approach specific hypotheses, results are implemented with the focus to
    deliver improved diagnostics and prognostics regarding these tumor types.
    As an example, the project group has aided in the identification of two
    molecular markers for malignant parathyroid tumors (parafibromin and APC)
    which have been implemented for clinical use as diagnostic markers at several
    international institutions, including Karolinska University Hospital.
