About me

  • I am double specialist in hematology and internal medicine since 1993 and Professor of hematology at the Department of Medicine, Huddinge since 2009. I have worked within the translational research field for many years and been actively involved in strategic research questions. I have been president for the European Association of Hematology and for the Swedish Society of Hematology.

    I am leading the Eva Hellström-Lindberg group – Myelodysplastic syndromes, at the Deparment of Medicine, Huddinge.

    I was previously involved in graduate training within ethics and communication skills. Presently I am focused on creating a good environment for post graduate students. I was previously Chair for doctoral studies at the Department of Medicine Huddinge for five years.

    Academic honours, awards and prizes
    I have received both junior and senior research awards from the Swedish Cancer Society.
    In 2018 I received a Wallenberg Clinical Scholar grant
  • 3 million per year for 5 years.
    In 2016, I received José Carreras Award: This year's premier hematological award in Europe.


  • My research program focuses on the hemopoietic stem cell malignancy myelodysplastic syndromes (MDS) and include genetic, epigenetic, and cellular studies.

    The aim is to understand mechanisms for disease progression, leukemic transformation, and erythroid failure. I also lead a clinical specialist program for patients with this disease, as well as the Nordic MDS research group, which drives a broad clinical trial and biomarker program.

    Furthermore, I am Chair for the Center for Hematology and Regenerative Medicine at Campus Flemingsberg, a translational research environment combining basic and clinical competences within hematology, regenerative medicine and immunology.
