Mama & Family Project Manager
Laura is a second year Master’s student in Biomedicine at Karolinska Institutet. After her Bachelor studies in Biology at the University of Technology Dresden (Germany), she worked as a research assistant at KI and, later, continued further with her studies. After a summer internship in malaria research, she realized she wanted to explore other global health fields. She got her chance during the course of her studies at KI where she worked on a research project in the field of sexual and reproductive health. This experience developed her desire to contribute to the work of NGOs which have as their main focus the improvement of maternal and newborn care. Therefore, Laura joined the SOGH team and their Mama & Family Project in September 2017, now becoming the new manager of the Project.
