Field of work

I am a molecular biologisk and work with understanding the pathological link between genetics and development of diabetes. I teach Pathology at the Biomedical Laboratory Sciences education (bachelor level) and strive to motivate the students to understand the association between cause and disease development of various forms for disease, treatment and prognosis. I engage bachelor, master and phd students in research projects where aim is to understand the effect of gene damage for the development of inherited forms of diabetes, or effect of biomarkers on sports performance (interdisciplinary projects).
