About me

  • I work as an Alliance Manager for partnerships between academia and industry.
    My main role is supporting KI researchers in establishing and maintaining
    different types of collaborations with our corporate partners.
    I have a PhD in Medical Sciences from Karolinska Institutet with a focus on
    pharmacology of cytostatic drugs in patients with hematological malignancies
    following conditioning regimens prior to HSCT.

Research

  • My research was around studying the pharmacology of Busulphan, a cytostatic
    drug used in conditioning treatment prior to HSCT, and understanding the side
    effects such as hepatotoxicity and neurotoxicity manifested in patients with
    hematological malignancies.
