About me

  • I obtained a PhD in 2009 from Uppsala University and received my Docent/readership in 2016 from Lund University in experimental oncology with a focus on molecular imaging and radiochemistry.

    I have more than 14 years’ experience in both preclinical and clinical research in the fields of nuclear medicine, radionuclide production, molecular imaging, and antibody-based theranostics. Currently, I lead the TRANslational Theranostics group, which is dedicated to advancing theranostics - an elegant approach that seamlessly integrates diagnostics and therapy in one solution, revolutionizing precision medicine in cancer management.

    2016 Docent in experimental oncology, Lund University
    2009 Ph.D. Degree, specialized in Molecular imaging and radiometal chemistry, Uppsala University
    2008 Master Degree in Medical radionuclide techniques, Uppsala University
    2005 Master of Science in Pharmacy, Uppsala University


  • My research group focuses on the development of theranostics, i.e. radiopharmaceuticals for precision diagnostics, therapy and monitoring of diseases, with the emphasis in oncological diseases. We conduct studies to identify new targets and screen for new drugs for cancer treatments. In parallel, we perform novel developments of non-conventional radiometals using solid target on cyclotron, novel radiotracer developments, and biological evaluation studies in vitro and in vivo to clinical translation.

    We are a multidisciplinary team consisting of pharmacists, radiochemists, medicine doctoral students, medical physicists and biologists. We collaborate closely and broadly with other research groups for generating drug screening, target identification, and clinicians, oncologists, and radiologists for clinical translation.
