The main focus of my research is within the field of non-coding RNAs and cancer. The class of non-coding RNAs have promising potential as novel targets for cancer therapy, and for this reason it is important to acquire more knowledge about the basic function of these RNA species. Some of the research project I have been involved in have shed light on the accuracy of methods for performing small RNA profiling, have identified important cancer associated miRNAs in neuroblastoma and meningioma, and have identified the small RNA content in exosomes from breast cancer cells in order to...

I have since my PhD continued to work in virology of arctic mammals, mostly reindeer and seals. My work ranges from epidemiological studies of viral infections in the Arctic to molecular aspects of viral pathogenesis of herpesvirus and discovery of new viruses in reindeer and other arctic animals.
I am very interested in the study of virulence mechanisms specially those regulating the host-pathogen interaction and the pathogen evasion from the host immune system. This is special relevant for agents of veterinary and zoonotic relevance such as vector born viruses. When ad...
