About me

  • I studied medicine in Uppsala and graduated in June 2000. I combine research
    with clinical work at the Pediatric Endocrinology Unit at Astrid
    Lindgren Children's Hospital, Karolinska University Hospital, Stockholm.
    M.D. Specialist in Pediatrics, fellow in Pediatric Endocrinology.


  • My PhD projects are both experimental and clinical. One of my research
    aims is to establish a clinically relevant experimental model suitable for
    studies of longitudinal bone growth /in vitro/. Other aims are to find more
    efficacious treatments for short stature and to find means on how to
    identify responders and non-responders to growth hormone treatment earlier
    than what is possible today.
