Since January 2016
March 2015 --- December 2015
Involved in GMP-regulated purification of recombinant human coagulation factor VIII.
January 2008 --- January 2015
During this period I wrote six novels. Some of them have ingredients of popular science and all contain mysteries to be solved; psychological and external. I am still in the process of writing.
January 2009 --- January 2011
Initiated a study with the aim to find new drug resistance mechanisms of breast tumour cells by combining studies of drug-induced cell death and division with mass spectrometry-based analysis of broad protein expression and pathway analysis. Long-term goal was to find new subgroups of basal-like breast cancer and biomarkers enabling personalized treatment. The work included construction of a cell culture laboratory,extensive literature searches, budget planning, writing grant applications, experimental work and data analysis. Major techniques used: Cell culture: Various types of breast cancer cell lines Experimental techniques: MTT-assay Sample preparation for mass spectrometry Data base search for protein identification and pathway analysis of mass spectrometry data
January 2003 --- January 2007
Studies on effects of DNA damage and kinase inhibition in lung cancer cells resistant to conventional anti-cancer treatment. Focus was directed towards cell cycle, mitotic catastrophe, kinase signalling (protein kinase C, PI3-kinase and MEK) and mechanisms of various types of cell death, mainly apoptosis. 2003 - 2007 PhD students´ representative of the Institute of Environmental Medicine advisory board Major techniques used: Cell culture: Various types of lung cancer cell lines Primary cultures of oral keratinocytes Experimental techniques: Quantitative RT-PCR Western Blot Flow cytometry Confocal microscopy studies (immunocytochemistry, nuclear morphology) MTT-assay siRNA technique Caspase activity assays
March 2000 --- December 2000
Performed research related to wastewater treatment and took part in teaching and developing a training-course in microbiology for biotechnology students. Major techniques used: Cell culture: Various types of bacteria, including e-coli and denitrifying bacteria Experimental techniques: Microscopy studies (FISH, morphology)
