The complex cellular and molecular organization of the brain drives a variety of physiological and cognitive functions. In this course we explore gene expression and protein distribution on the level of organ, brain region, and cell. We utilize data and resources from the human protein atlas project and other public available data sets to learn the advantages and limitations of different approaches, validate results, and utilize the available complementary data to link genes to cells and cellular processes involved in ‘normal’ physiology or disease.
PhD in molecular neurobiology (Rijksuniversiteit Groningen, 2005). Group leader at department of Neuroscience, Karolinska Institutet and the brain profiling efforts within the Human Protein Atlas (HPA) project since 2010. Research focus on identifying the cellular location of proteins linked to brain function and disease. MSc in biology (Rijksuniversiteit Groningen, 2000). With DIS since 2017.
BSc in Molecular Biology (Liverpool, 1998) and PhD in Molecular Biology of Ischemic Stroke (Manchester, 2005). Currently a researcher at the Department of Neuroscience, Karolinska Institute and the Brain Profiling sub-unit of the Human Protein Atlas (HPA) project since 2011. Research focuses on the central nervous systems of mammals, with an emphasis on the identification of proteins involved in brain normal development and pathophysiology. With DIS since 2020.
