About Christian's research

I am head of the Broberger lab, at the Department of Neuroscience, Karolinska Institutet. In my research, I focus on understanding the neuronal brain networks enabling the structure of basic survival functions. I have a special interest in food intake, sleep and hormone regulation, focusing on the hypothalamus and cerebral cortex. Methods I use are for example electrophysiology and microscopy in various animal models.

I was Chair of the Young Academy of Sweden in 2012/13.

In brief

Born: 1972

My ideas about how Sweden can become an even better country for science and research no longer remain small talk at the coffee machine but get a chance to reach into the government offices at Rosenbad.
