Protein misfolding and disease
Per Hammarström, received his MSc in 1995 and PhD in Biochemistry in 2000 at Linköping University (LiU) with Prof. Uno Carlsson. He then did a post doctoral stay 2000-2002 at The Scripps Research Institute, in La Jolla, USA with Prof. Jeffery W. Kelly. He started his independent research group as Assistant professor at LiU in 2003 and was 2008 awarded full Professor of Protein Chemistry. His early research was centered on the role of protein folding intermediates in the protein folding process, and the mechanistic function of molecular chaperones during productive folding. Following his post doctoral years working on transthyretin amyloidogenesis, Hammarström’s research has shifted towards investigation of protein misfolding and its key role in a variety of amyloid and prion diseases. His research is focused on protein misfolding, amyloid formation and disease on the molecular level.
