CURRICULUM VITAE



CURRENT POSITION

Assistant researcher at the research team on “Neurochemical Pathogenesis and Diagnostics” at the
Inst. of Neuroscience and Physiologi, University of Gothenburg, Sweden.

EDUCATION AND SCIENTIFIC MERITS

Degree of Master of medicine in pharmaceutical bioscience,
University of Gothenburg, Sweden. 2005
Exam from Göteborg Graduate School in Bioscience,
University of Gothenburg, Sweden. 2005
Degree of Doctor of philosophy (medicine) in neurochemistry (PhD),
University of Gothenburg, Sweden. 2009

RESEARCH INTERES

Genetic studies on Alzheimer’s disease and Parkinson’s disease. We are mainly studying candidate genes using the haplotype approach. My main focus so far is genes in pathways that cause protein aggregation through impaired cellular transport (focusing on the kinesin transport system) and oxidative stress (focusing on the Nrf2-Keap1 oxidative stress response).

SCIENTIFIC PRODUCTION
 

Publications

• 9 publications (original research papers in peer-reviewed journals).
• 1 review (in a peer-reviewed journal).
