Emil Arkstål

I am studying Engineering Biology at Linköping University, and have finished my third year. I am however taking a break in order to work as an intern at ISB group until december 2015.

The project that I am currently involved in revolves around expanding a model designed to simulate and describe the insulin pathway through the phosphoproteome. The vision of the project is to be able to simulate the healthy version of the proteome, with the ability to (with the push of a button) make the proteome develop diabetes. The purpose of this is to further develop our understanding of diabetes as a whole, with a focus on type 2 diabetes.
