Carl Magnus Larsson

B.Sc. Molecular Biology and Ph.D. Biochemistry from Stockholm University followed by postdoctoral work at Stanford University with Dr. Roger Kornberg (Nobel laureate in Chemistry, 2006). Generalist with a wide range of expertise including structural biology, molecular genetics, and biomolecule separation methods. His research interests have been focused on nucleotide metabolism, transcription and RNA biology underlying gene expression in cancer.

  • Passion for discovery tempered by a rational insight of the research and development process. Resilient and resourceful in problem-solving. Maintaining a strategic mindset in stressful situations.

  • Generalist in life science research with extensive knowledge in molecular biology, cell biology, and biochemistry. An expert structural biologist with a specialization in X-ray crystallography.

  • A career in nucleotide metabolism with special focus on structural studies of small molecule interactions with protein, RNA, DNA, and RNA-DNA protein complexes.

  • Current research has focused on how potential structural states of IRES elements in p53 mRNA, harboring silent mutations, affect RNA chaperone interactions in cap-independent expression of the tumor suppressor gene
