About me

  • Sebastian is currently a Postdoctoral Fellow in the King Lab at the Institute
    for Protein Design, University of Washington, Seattle and affiliated to
    Karolinska Institutet.
    I completed my doctoral studies in the research group of Professor Karin
    Loré studying how B cell responses are modulated by nanoparticle vaccine
    formulations. In particular, I studied how the breadth and potency of
    anti-viral antibody and B cell responses is affected by antigen display. My
    thesis was titled: "Cellular and molecular mechanisms for induction of broad
    anti-viral B cell responses through vaccination [1]."
    2023 Sven Gard Prize for Best Thesis in Virology at Karolinska Institutet in
    2022 [2]
    2017-2022 PhD in Medical Science, Karolinska Institutet, Stockholm, Sweden.
    2014-2016 Master of Science in Medical Biotechnology, KTH Royal Institute of
    Technology, Stockholm, Sweden.
    2010-2014 Bachelor of Science in Biotechnology, KTH Royal Institute of
    Technology, Stockholm, Sweden.

  • A better understanding of how the immune system interacts with vaccines will
    allow us to rationally select formulations that have the capacity to elicit
    stronger immunity and can be advanced into clinical testing. Our studies can
    ultimately provide information on vaccine antigen persistence, distribution,
    and the immunological steps for the onset of B cell responses to understand
    the generation of high-quality and durable antibody responses.
