About Anna Svärd

Anna is a PhD student at the department of Medical Sciences with focus on inflammation and infection. Her principal supervisor is professor Torbjörn Bengtsson at Cardiovacular Research Centre, CVRC. Annas assistant supervisor is Eleonor Palm, senior lecturer at the School of Health sciences. Annas PhD-studies is performed in collaboration with Linköping University where her assistant supervisor is Daniel Aili, professor at the Department of Physics, Chemistry and Biology.

Annas research is aiming to develop and evaluate nanoscaled sensors for diagnostics of periodontitis. Her research also includes to evaluate the effect of an antimicrobial peptide in periodontal diseases. 

Anna recieved her masters degree within the field of biomedicine from Linköping University in 2016 and prior to that also has a dentist certificate from Gothenburg University.
