Om mig

  • Jakob conducted his PhD studies on human immunodeficiency syndromes affecting lymphocyte cytotoxicity in the Professor Yenan Bryceson research group from 2010 to 2017, in parallel with his clinical training. After obtaining his medical license and PhD in 2017, he became as a registrar in general adult psychiatry at Psychiatry Southwest, Stockholm. In 2018, he took up a postdoctoral researcher position in the Oxford Autoimmune Neurology Group led by Professor Sarosh Irani at the University of Oxford. There, he primarily studied lymphocyte function and clonality in the context of autoimmune neurological syndromes, specifically NMDA-R, LGI1 and CASPR2 autoantibody encephalitis as well as Neuromyelitis optica.

    Jakob came back to Sweden in 2020 and took up his clinical duties at Psychiatry Southwest and a postdoctoral position in Professor Fredrik Piehl's group, where he focused on immune cell phenotyping in Myasthenia gravis. In 2022, Jakob joined the Jenny Mjösberg research group as a Team leader, aiming to build a team focused on autoimmune neurology and started a gradual transition into clinical neurology. He became a registrar in neurology in 2023 and is currently involved in building both national and Scandinavian networks for collaboration for the betterment of patient care and resarch around autoimmune encephalitis. When not at work, Jakob is a keen musician and loves carpentry
