I am a molecular biochemist with a special interest in how the host microenvironment, which undergoes a massive remodeling in response to signals derived from both malignant and host cells, determines the invasive outcome of breast cancer cells.
Over the years, I have published more than 60 scientific papers and book chapters. I have been Section Editor on Glycobiology in the DeGruyter book Extracellular Matrix: Pathobiology and Signaling and co-Editor for Advances in Cancer Research (Elsevier). In addition to my Ludwig research appointment, I coordinate a student exchange program between Uppsala University and Yamagata University in Japan. I also organize and teach Cell Signaling for graduate students at Uppsala University. I regularly review national and international grants and academic positions.
