About me

  • Senior consultant in cardiolgy at the Department of cardiology, Danderyd
    University Hospital
    MD at Karolinska Institutet, PhD in pharmacology at Karolinska Institutet.
    Profssor in medicine. Board certified specialist in internal medicine and

  • My main research interests are related to neurohormonal mechanisms in the
    control of blood pressure and cardiac function, with a focus on structural
    myocardial and vascular changes in hypertension, hypertesive heart disease,
    the transition from hypertension to heart failure, and on neuroendocrine
    regulatory mechanisms in heart failure. In particular, we study effects of
    the sympathetic nervous system and the renin-angiotensin-aldosterone system
    in this context. Other areas of interest are cardiovacular risk assesment and
    prevention, and health economics and implementation of treatment.
