About Johnny Karlsson

My role as a Research Coordinator is to coordinate the development the ongoing research activities in both the Nutrition-Gut-Brain Interactions Research Centre (NGBI) as well as the Örebro Nutrition and Physical Activity Research Centre for Optimal Health and Functionality through Life (NUPARC).

Among the many responsibilities that I have, I oversee administrative- and financial matters, I facilitate the neccessary means (in terms of money, personel, facilities and equipment) to keep research activities ongoing, I aid in the merging of research activities between the university and the county council hospital, I handle communication with business partners and society, etc.

My past experiences in research and eduction (a PhD in Biology, Animal Physiologi from Umeå University) and in university administration (5 years as a Rsearch Advisor at Grants Office in Örebro) is a hugh support in my everyday work. Knowledge about both sides of the coin has granted me the holistic view neccesary to bridge, integrate and coordinate activites from both camps.
