Soran Rabin Bozorg
I am currently completing my residency (specialist training) in Gastroenterology and Hepatology at the Karolinska University Hospital while simultaneously pursuing a PhD in Epidemiology and Health Economics at Karolinska Institutet under the supervision of Professor Jonas F Ludvigsson.
I completed my medical internship at Örebro University Hospital and received my medical licence in 2022. I also hold a Licentiate degree in Medicine from Örebro University, an M.D. from Karolinska Institutet and a B.Sc. in Business and Economics from Stockholm School of Economics. Moreover, I am a member of the Global Shapers Community, and a member of Global Utmaning (a Swedish think-tank) where I serve as an advisor in the committee on health and wellbeing.
More information about my professional experiences is available on LinkedIn.
The aim of my current research is to explore medical and economic outcomes in patients with various gastrointestinal diseases, including celiac disease, eosinophilic esophagitis and microscopic colitis. This is done through large-scale epidemiological studies by combining real-world data (RWD) from nationwide Swedish health registries with histopathology data from the ESPRESSO study. The research is carried out as part of a doctoral degree supervised by Professor Jonas F Ludvigsson, in collaboration with researchers from Karolinska Institutet, University of Gothenburg, Colombia University and Harvard University.
Prior to my ongoing research, I have also pursued epidemiological research within cardiovascular disease, thrombotic disease and colorectal cancer in parallel to my medical studies - all at Karolinska Institutet.
