Science for Life Laboratory, Stockholm University
My research is focused on development and application of novel molecular analysis tools and systems. I have pioneered the development of methods based on DNA circularization, i.e., padlock and selector probes, as well as rolling circle amplification (RCA). The work involves fundamental studies of nuclease- and nucleic acid hybridization mechanisms, design assays based on them and integrate these into methods and systems. I have a large international network of collaborators in academia and industry, ranging from basic molecular biology and physics to clinicians and engineers. The aim is to enable new research and to bring some technologies towards diagnostic use. My group is based at Science for Life Laboratory, which is a joint cross-disciplinary research center at the Karolinska Campus, formed by Stockholm University, Karolinska Institutet, and KTH. I have authored more than 140 scientific articles that have been cited more than 7 000 times (h-index 40).
