"Sofia Forslund"

Dr Sofia Kirke Forslund (published as Kristoffer Forslund prior to transition in 2018) trained as a molecular biotechnologist in Uppsala, then in 2011 aquired a PhD in computational biology in Stockholm. After post-doctoral research at the EMBL she founded in 2018 the Host-Microbiome Systems Medicine of Cardiometabolic Disease group at the ECRC (joint MDC/Charité venture) in Berlin. Her work to date has focused in three main areas.
