Karl Björk

Bachelor thesis student, spring 2019

I have pursued a career as a neuroscientist for the last 15 years. I obtained my PhD within from KI in the field of addiction neuroscience with focus on translational genetic approaches. Subsequent work was focused on molecular pharmacology of opioid and serotonergic receptors but also the role of social exclusion and inflammatory processes in alcoholism. Recently I felt the need to switch careers particularily since I wanted to get involved in clinical work, therefore i enrolled i the psychology program which I am now half way through.
