Professor of Ethnology, Lund University

I do ethnological research on areas including health, identity, transplantation, xenotransplantation, IVF , organ trade, fake medicines and global grey zones. I work interdisciplinary. Recent projects include how researchers should collaborate with participants in clinical experiments for Huntington's disease. I also do research on the spread of falsified medicines and using ethnography as a model to investigate biomedicine’s moral and legal grey areas and to provide a basis for international actions.
