About me

I am a project manager and a national withdrawal coordinator for Biobank Sweden. In my role as a coordinator, I help researchers to navigate the biobanking system of liquid sample withdrawals, am a single point of contact for researchers and the receiving laboratory, and coordinate the withdrawal process between biobanks. In addition, I lead a project group that maintains and develops the national withdrawal process. Our goal is to identify solutions to make it more time and resource efficient for both researchers and biobanks alike.
