School of Bioscience
Researcher within Systems Biology Research Center. My research focuses in infection biology with systems biological applications. Ongoing research projects are Development of multimarker panels for sepsis diagnostics and Prediction of severe soilborne crop diseases.
Both research projects are financially supported by the Knowledge Foundation and are conducted in close co-production with our extern collaboration partners: Skaraborgs Sjukhus, Unilabs AB, TATAA Biocenter AB, bioMérieux Sweden AB, MultiD Analyses AB, HS Konsult AB and ScanBI Diagnostics AB.
