I am studying Engineering Biology at Linköping University, and have finished my third year. However, I have taken a break from my studies to work as an intern here at ISB group until the 26th of June 2016.

The project I am currently working with revolves around minimizing a previously created mathematical model aimed at describing the desensitization of G protein-coupled β2 adrenergic receptors which are crucial for heart muscle contraction. The purpose of this study is to learn more about what interactions are most important regarding the phenomenon desensitization and the events ultimately leading up to heart attack.
