      Katarina Ejeskär

      Professor of Biomedicine
      School of Health Sciences
      Room G1417

      Have a MSci in molecular biology from University of Gothenburg, and since 2000 a PhD in clinical genetics from the Sahlgrenska Academy, Gothenburg. The thesis focused on the genetics of neuroblastoma. Had a research group at Sahlgrenska Academy until 2015, and am an Associate Professor (Docent) in experimental clinical genetics at this academy.

      Since 2015 Professor in Biomedicin at University of Skövde, and research group leader for the research group Translational Medicine TRIM. I am responsible for the fruit fly facility at the university, that is used both in research and in the education. Teaches mainly in the Biomedicine program in genetics, tumor biology and thesis work courses. Am main supervisor for two PhD-students.

      Research

      My research

      My main research focus is childhood cancer research; neural tumors, mainly 11q-deleted neuroblastoma. The project focus on the genetic changes in the tumor, and how they affect the tumor growth and survival. We use cell culture, the fruit fly and some primary tumor material to test hypotheses, that we get from analysis of genetic data from publically available databases.

      I am also engaged in a number of collaboration projects:

      • One with PhD Ferenc Szekeres that focus on digitoxin treatment of pancreatic cancer. 
      • One with Professor Homa Tajsharghi that focus on rare genetic disorders.
      • One with Doc. Åsa Torinsson Naluai that focus on gluten intolerance, diabetes and probiotics.
      • One with Doc. Victoria Rotter Sopasakis that focus on alternative splicing and PI3K-signaling.
      • One with Doc. Frida Abel that focus on fusion genes in braintumors.
