New student - Victor

This autumn, we welcome another new student in our group: Victor Viberg

Hi, my name is Victor Viberg. I’m studying biomedical engineering at Linköping University, currently I’m working on my master thesis in the ISB-group at IMT.

The goal of my project is to create a model that can explain the metabolic fluxes of a cancer cell and how it differs from a regular healthy cell. Hopefully this new insight will help in developing more effective treatments for cancer. The model is based on isotropic labeling of metabolites, and it is the first time this type of data is available for a whole human cell. My work will build on the previous work of Nicolas Sundqvist.
