Om mig

PhD Student at Karolinska Institutet under the main supervision of assistant professor Ninib Baryawno. The thesis focuses on the functional characterization and targeting of neuroblastoma cell of origin. The aim is to investigate SCPs in neuroblastoma animal models and establish ex-vivo organoid models that recapitulate patient tumors. This will enable the preclinical testing of tumor-differentiating treatments on malignant neuroblastoma tumors.
