He has held different positions as a nurse within the fields of hematology, clinical immunology and sexually transmissible infections including HIV. As a Research Coordinator he coordinated several phase II and III clinical trials in the fields of anti-retroviral therapy and therapeutic HIV vaccines. Doing translational research within the HIV field, Lars completed an MSc in Chemistry at Stockholm University in 2001 and a PhD in Nursing at Karolinska Institutet in 2003.

At present, Lars is an Associate Professor in Care Sciences and holds a position as Senior Lecturer in Nursing at Karolinska Institutet, Stockholm, Sweden where he is the shared lead of the Innovative Care unit.

Research

Research overview

With university degrees in both nursing and natural sciences (Chemistry), Lars' scientific profile has developed towards the branch in care science established as biobehavioural nursing research or translational nursing research. Even if there is no absolute consensus, biobehavioural nursing research could be defined as research that strives towards increased understandings of the links between biologic, behavioural and social manifestations of vulnerability and risk in different populations. Early in his research career, he combined scientific activity within nursing and biomedicine, mainly in the areas of HIV and sexual health. After the dissertation work, his research line has expanded to include studies of populations with other long-lasting or chronic conditions. He is PI for studies investigating quality of life, stigma and illness perception in children, young adults and adults with HIV infections and adults with MRSA infections. Furthermore, he is a joint PI for a translational nursing research project on the early signs of lung cancer.
