  • The major research interest is understanding chronic viral hepatitis, cancer, and severe viral infections to develop new preventive and therapeutic strategies. A large part of the work is dedicated to gene and cell-based therapies, so called GTMPs and ATMPs.


  • I have since my time at the school of dentistry participated in undergraduate and graduate teaching in cell biology, virology and infectious disease. The main teaching efforts are in virology within many of the undergraduate programs at Karolinska Institutet.
