I am Pro-Vice-Chancellor of Umeå University since 1 July 2016 and function as surrogate to the Vice-Chancellor. I am responsible for research and doctoral education in medicine, natural sciences and technology. My assignment also includes responsibilities for third-stream activities and internationalisation of research.

Biography:
I took my Degree of Master of Science in Medicine at Umeå University in 1988. Four years later, I completed my PhD with the doctoral thesis Monoclonal antibodies against PLAP and cytokeratin in radioimmunoscintigraphy and radioimmunotherapy. In 2002, I became professor of diagnostic radiology at Umeå University and senior consultant physician at Imaging and Functional Medicine at the Västerbotten County Council.

I have held the post as deputy head of department and head of department of the Department of Radiation Sciences for several years. From 2008–2011, I was deputy dean at the Faculty of Medicine, and in 2011–2017 I was programme director of the Medical Programme at the Faculty of Medicine.

Furthermore, I have had a number of posts in steering committees and project groups, and have been member of several councils and committees, such as for instance the Strategic Council for Education, Umeå Center for Functional Brain Imaging and the steering committee for interactive, creative environments.

Among my international endeavours, my role as chairperson of one of the world's largest scientific associations in radiology, the European Society of Radiology is one example. I have also been president of one of the world's largest radiology conferences – the European Congress of Radiology – and was deeply involved in starting the international association the European Society for Hybrid Imaging – Molecular and Translational. I have been active in the work aimed at the protection against radiation in the ICRP, International Commission on Radiological Protection. I am also honorary member of the French radiology society – Société Française de Radiologie – and the Radiological Society of North America (RSNA).

Research:
My research revolves around visualising biochemical processes in the human body. In my research, I use so-called Hybrid Imaging – an advanced method for medical imaging using a combination of positron emission tomography (PET) and computed tomography (CT) or magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), so-called PET/CT and PET/MRI.

My research interest primarily focuses on visualising dopaminergic functions in the brain to increase the understanding of processes in the ageing brain, dementia and Parkinson's disease. I also study how best to improve visualisation of the spread of cancer and response to treatment, particularly prostate cancer and colorectal cancer.
