Im a Post-doc in Maja Jagodic´s neuroimmunology unit and a resident physician at the neurology clinic at Karolinska hospital.
My main focus is on the role of microglial cells in chronic CNS inflammation such as progressive multiple sclerosis. I'm interested in functional microglial phenotypes and how these are affected by environment and treatments, and how we can utilize this to benefit patients. During my PhD, I studied the protective microglial function in clearing and degrading debris through autophagy in experimental MS models. My aim during my post-doc is to translate these findings to human disease
