The story I shall recount started in 1969, when I was given the opportunity to join the Department of Clinical Chemistry at the University Hospital in Malmo. I had just finished medical school at the university in the neighboring town of Lund. Parallel to pursuing my medical studies I had spent some time in the Department of Biochemistry. I did not know much about biochemistry, but it was enough for me to realize that I wanted to do laboratory research rather than developing a clinical career. I was happy to accept an offer to start working in the laboratory, particularly as the head of the department, Professor Carl-Bertil Laurell, had an excellent reputation. As it turned out, I came to spend almost all of my professional life in the laboratory.
