Om mig

  • Core Facility Manager of the Brain Molecular Imaging Centre (BMIC)
    Researcher in the research Group Farde/Halldin working in the imaging field
    with the technique Positron Emission Tomography (PET).


  • My main research is using neuroimaging within neurodegenerative diseases
    mainly including Alzeimer’s Disease (AD) as well as other neurodegenerative
    disorders such as Parkinson’s Disease (PD) and Huntington’s Disease (HD).
    The main method used is Positron Emission Tomography (PET) using various
    biomarkers for Amyloid, Tau, and radioligands for neuroinflammation, etc.
    My first years in PET research included the world first studies of in vivo
    amyloid PET imaging in mild cognitive impairment (MC) and longitudinal
    changes of amyloid load in AD. I have after that continued AD research at the
    Karolinska PET center in Solna including several projects focusing on
    evaluation and application of novel PET radioligands targeting amyloid and
    neuroinflammatory targets such as the Translocator protein (TSPO) in
    microglia. Besides my focus on AD I have been and currently am involved in
    many other projects including studies of pathological changes in PD
    investigating the serotonergic and dopaminergic systems and
    neuroinflammation, as well as developing novel radioligands targeting mutant
    huntingtin in HD.
    During my 19 year long career within PET research I have become an expert in
    data analysis and modelling of PET data in humans as well as non-human
    primates. As part of my work here at Karolinska Institutet PET center I have
    also worked extensively with project management of academic projects as well
    as collaborations with industrial partners. Therefore my involvement and
    tasks within this application is clearly connected to both my interests in
    the research fields as well as my expertise in PET data analysis and project
