Jannike Nickander

Postdoctoral researcher

My research focuses on the pathophysiological knowledge of microvascular dysfunction by investigating both cardiac and non-cardiac diseases using a unique set up of state-of-the-art cardiac imaging.

About me

I am a physician scientist who is intrigued by quantitative cardiac imaging. I started medical school at Karolinska Institutet in 2010, and involved myself in a research project with cardiovascular magnetic resonance during my second year. It was so much fun that I eventually became a PhD student and defended my thesis "Diagnostic precision and sex differences in quantitative cardiovascular magnetic resonance imaging" in 2018, after graduating from medical school in 2016. I did my research internship (Forskar-AT) at Karolinska University Hospital and became a licensed physician (leg läk) in May 2021. I am currently a resident in Clinical Physiology and work part time with research on coronary microvascular dysfunction and women's hearts at Karolinska University Hospital and Karolinska Institutet.
