Nina Persson

Bio:Nina Persson obtained her Master of Science in Engineering, Biotechnology at the Faculty of Engineering, Lund University, Sweden in 2012 and her Bachelor of Science in Pharmacy at the University of Kalmar, Sweden. She had the opportunity to perform her Master Thesis at BioInvent International AB in Lund where she then stayed and worked as a Research Engineer with target identification of tumor specific antibodies. She focused on method development and optimization that resulted in an optimal protocol for identification of plasma membrane antigen using techniques within protein analysis.

Glycans and its glycosylated / glycated proteins have a significant role in a variety of human diseases such as increased metastasis in cancer, increased binding of virus or development of autoimmunity as in diabetes. She is interested in development of a large panel of antibodies with differently defined specificity to post-translationally modified proteins and the potential to very rapidly evaluate patterns of change associated with for example malignancy for prognosis and diagnosis. She is today pursuing her interest by taking part in the Marie Curie Gastric GlycoExplorer ITN as a PhD student in Ola Blixt group at the Department of Chemistry at the University of Copenhagen, Denmark.
