Medicine and Health Sciences

In 2010 I was awarded ny doctoral degree with the thesis titled "Platelets: with special reference to platelet density subpopulations, stable coronary heart disease and atrial fibrillation".

My research applies modern laboratory technology and measurement methods I have developed to common illnesses treated at smaller hospitals and healthcare centres. I belong to a research group that collaborates with various units at the Vrinnevi Hospital in Norrköping, Sweden (e.g., psychiatry and medical clinic). For several years the research group has also collaborated with the Vikbolandet healthcare centre. Another collaboration partner in Alzheimer’s research includes Karolinska Institutet, Huddinge (Professor B. Winblad). In addition, I have an academic cooperation with the Pain Clinic in Linköping (Professor B. Gerdle) and with Norrköping Municipality.
