About me

Agneta Nordenskjöld was appointed Professor of Paediatric Surgery at Karolinska Institutet in 2008. Her research is about trying to understand why congenital malformations occur at a molecular level. In particular, she focuses her research on bladder exstrophy (when the child is born with an open urinary bladder) and on disorders of sex development, such as hypospadias (malformed urethra in boys) and unclear sex at birth.
