Organising committee

Martin Sundqvist, MD, PhD
Senior Consultant in Clinical Microbiology, University hospital, Örebro

Meeting President 39th NSCMID

My main research interests are in the fields if diagnostic microbiology, molecular epidemiology, rapid AST and antibiotic resistance. During the last years Pandemic preparedness has also caught my attention.

Sara Cajander
Senior Consultant Physician at the Department of Infectious Diseases, Örebro University Hospital, and Adjunct Associate Professor at the Faculty of Medicine and Health, Örebro University, Sweden.

Sara has a special research interest in the scientific field of sepsis and COVID-19. She is a member of the national expert committee responsible for the Swedish national clinical guidelines for evidence-based management of both sepsis and COVID-19.

Magnus Johansson, PhD, Professor
School of Medical Sciences, Örebro university, Örebro

My main research interests include vaccine development, molecular epidemiology and molecular virology with a special focus on flaviviruses such as Tick-borne encephalitis virus.

Alexander Persson, PhD
Senior Lecturer, School of Medical Sciences, Örebro University.

Coordinator of the NSCMID PhD pre-course “Omics approaches for Clinical Microbiology and Infectious Diseases”

My main research interests revolves around inflammatory responses in innate immunity, with a special focus on inflammasome regulation. Cellular mechanisms during sterile particulate stimulation or specific host-pathogen interactions are equally interesting.

Paula Mölling
Associate professor, Paula Mölling, PhD, has been a molecular biologist at the Department of Laboratory Medicine, Clinical Microbiology, University Hospital Örebro, Sweden, since 2001. From 2018 she is also working as a national project leader of the Microbiology group in the Genomic Medicine Sweden (GMS) project, which aim that all patients in Sweden will get the same diagnostic possibilities using the Next generation Sequencing (NGS) technologies.

Mölling’s research focuses on bacterial infections, i.e. Neisseria meningitides and Staphylococcus aureus, with current projects examining the genetic characterisation, including NGS, in the investigation of suspected outbreaks and epidemiological surveillance. Additionally, her studies concern the development of metagenomics NGS (mNGS) techniques for optimal diagnosis of sepsis in whole blood, as well as other invasive infections. Co-chair and National project manager for GMS Microbiology


Edvin Ingberg
Infectious disease resident, PhD, Örebro University Hospital/Örebro University

I have a scientific background in clinical chemistry/neuroscience. My current clinical interests include antibiotic pharmacology and antimicrobial resistance.
