Research Interest:
 My research interests are in misfolding diseases- in particular Alzheimer’s disease. I obtained my PhD in Biochemistry at Linkoping University in Sweden, where my thesis focused on protein misfolding and molecular chaperones. In 2009, I moved to Wako, Japan where I am a Post Doctoral fellow with Dr Mizuo Maeda in the bioengineering laboratory at RIKEN. Since I started in Maeda laboratory under the direction of Dr Tamotsu Zako, I began to characterize the role of the molecular chaperone prefoldin in Alzheimer’s disease. I have studied the interactions between the amyloid beta protein and prefoldin and the toxic effects of amyloid beta oligomers, with or without presence of prefoldin, on pc12 cells. The major research goal is to understand the molecular mechanisms that underlie neurodegenerative disorders associated with protein misfolding, focusing on Alzheimer’s disease.
