Personal profile


Mats Ehinger is a clinical scientist translating basic immunologic and molecular research to clinical diagnostic practice. His research is focused on developing immunologic and molecular techniques for improved leukemia and lymphoma diagnostics. Dr Ehinger´s research has led to the establishment of several diagnostic methods that today are used in routine clinical practise, particularly for measurement of residual disease in leukemia patients after treatment. Another focus of his research is to improve, simplify and streamline lymphoma diagnostics by applying immunologic and molecular methods on cytologic rather than histologic material. His vision is that future lymphoma diagnostics to a large extent will be possible to perform on cytologic material from fine needle biopsies rather than surgical biopsies with cost-benefit and logistic advantages.
