About me

  • After Master Degree in Biomedical engineering, I studied as a Doctoral
    student at Semmelweis University in Hungary and obtained a doctoral degree in
    Pathology. One of my research areas was the investigation and development of
    new biomarkers on cervical liquid-based samples and histological slides. In
    my doctoral thesis, I focused on the investigation of autophagy and microRNA
    expression in chronic and neoplastic liver diseases in vivo and in vitro.


  • I am currently working as a Postdoctoral Fellow at Karolinska Universitet in
    Mikael Björnstedt's group, developing new treatment regimens aimed at the
    treatment of highly resistant liver and Pancreatic cancer, in which the
    strategy is to exploit the cytotoxic effects of selenium compounds. My work
    focuses on the molecular mechanisms behind the cytotoxic effects of
    selenium-based treatments. In addition, I am also analyzing microRNAs that
    can be used in combination with Selenite-based treatments to achieve
    high-precision targeting of pancreatic tumors while minimizing the effect on
    normal cells. Furthermore, I help to extend the patient- derived tissue
    culture model to another type of cancer, such as Hepatocellular carcinoma or
