My goal is to unravel how genetics and environment control embryonic development, to harness developmental pathways and design therapies for congenital disorders. I therefore performed PhD and post doc studies on developmental signaling pathways and embryonic development, and performed research at Rockefeller University to develop a high-throughput in vivo technology for genetic manipulation in utero. As the recipient of an EASL Mentorship Award, I also spent a min-sabbatical at Yale School of Medicine, establishing new collaborations and networks to address liver diseases.
The Andersson lab focuses on gene discovery projects and technology development, to unravel the mechanisms driving Notch-related congenital disorders. For more info, see also http://www.anderssonlab.com
Academic honours, awards and prizes
2017 The Daniel Alagille Award
This prize for one internationally competitive young scientist (under 40) in Europe is awarded by the European Association for the Study of the Liver (EASL), for research in the field of genetic cholestatic liver disorders..
2017 EASL Mentoring Progamme recipient
This European mentorship program awards two mentees per year with a mentor, in international competition and provides funds for visits and networking. ER Andersson was matched with Mario Strazzabosco, Yale, USA, and spent a month at Yale, as Visiting Assistant Professor, in fall of 2017.
2014 Sven och Ebba-Christina Hagbergs prize & grant
This prize for excellent young scientists, awarded every second year at Karolinska Institutet, is a personal prize and research grant.
