About me

  • I was recruited to Karolinska Institutet in 2006 to build up the recently
    formed Unit for Bioentrepreneurship (UBE). Today I am the Head of unit,
    leading the unit towards the next level, as the KI competence centre for
    entrepreneurship. I am also the KI Centre director at the Stockholm
    School of Entrepreneurship (SSES).
    2010: IRIS stipendiet, KvinnorKan. 50 000 SEK
    During my years at Karolinska Institutet, I have developed and directed many
    courses. For example, in 2010, I presented the first course in the Stockholm
    region, focusing on service innovation and business within healthcare (From
    Idea to Service Business – Transforming Healthcare). I have also been
    responsible for developing several training modules and seminar series, e.g.
    To work entrepreneurially for undergraduate students, Career Tools –
    Understanding and Building your Career Platform for doctoral students and Get
    Down to Business – Entrepreneurial Learning for university teachers. Over
    the years, I have also been the course director for three of the different
    courses within the Master’s programme in Bioentrepreneurship launched in


  • I have initiated and managed many externally funded projects within higher
    education, focused on changing the attitudes towards and implementing
    elements of innovation and entrepreneurship. The different projects have
    taken the student perspective by working with inspiration and role models,
    the teacher perspective by working with practical tools, and a more strategic
    perspective involving the managers of Departments and Study programmes. I
    have acted as the activity lead for a Pan-European Network for creative
    centres working with entrepreneurship education as part of the EU consortium
    EIT Health.
    My research background is within applied medical genetics, focusing on
    sensitive forensic DNA analysis at Uppsala University. As a researcher, I
    have experience in managing a research project with potential commercial
    value, working in close collaboration with a company and filing patent
    applications. I am now involved in the research programme “Patients in the
    driver’s seat – Implementing patient-driven co-care innovations” and
    starting research within bioentrepreneurship education.
