Kina Höglund

Centre Board member

I earned my PhD at Göteborg University in 2006 by studying the link between Alzheimer’s disease and cholesterol metabolism and statin treatment using various biomarkers in clinical studies. I joined AstraZeneca CNS&Pain in Södertälje 2007 where I have been working in drug development projects for Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s disease, from idea to Phase I/II clinical trials.

My field of expertise is molecular mechanisms of Alzheimer’s disease, translational science and biomarker development in neurodegenerative disorders. From my standpoint I would like to achieve progressive and prognostic biomarkers for Alzheimer's disease and related disorders to facilitate drug development and delivery of a treatment, which is partly challenged by the very long and costly therapeutic trials. I believe that collaborative efforts where one combine technology, disease knowledge and access to clinical material and patients is key for success and the Berzelii Centre is a very good example of this.
