Short presentation

Head of Department (2015 - 2018, 2019 - )

The principal tasks in addition to the administration are research and teaching. We study normal and pathological cell generation with focus on neurogenesis in retina. We grow human embryonic stem cell-derived organoids/retinoids in which retinoblastoma carcinogenesis is modelled. The teaching is medical and biomedical students in embryology.

Academic merits: PhD, Associate Professor, Excellent teacher
