  • My research focus on biomarkers of pulmonary morbidity and pathophysiological
    mechanisms of impaired pulmonary development, with special interest in the
    importance of polyunsaturated fatty acids.
    I work with Professor Erik Melén at the Department of Clinical Science and
    Education, Södersjukhuset (KI SÖS). Within my postdoc I also work with
