Research focus:

My research involves both wet lab work and the use of bioinformatics. I use these tools to study qualitative transcript variants and fusion genes that are involved in cancer biology and may ultimately have the potential as cancer biomarkers. More specifically:

 

1.Fusion transcripts involving the TCF7L2 gene in colorectal cancer and chimeric transcript overexpression in tumour versus normal.

2.Assessment of transcript structures and potential fusion genes in colorectal cancer by using a new custom targeted RNA sequencing approach.

3.Analysis of RNA sequencing data from embryonal carcinoma and embryonic stem cell lines in a testicular germ cell tumour setting.

 

Academic degrees:

2015: PhD, Medical Faculty, University of Oslo, Norway. Identification of novel fusion genes and transcript variants in cancer

2011: Msc in Molecular biology, University of Oslo, Norway. “Transcript variation and protein expression in testicular germ cell tumours”
