Anja Ekdahl received an M.S. in Analytical Chemistry in 1991 and a PhD in Analytical Chemistry in 1997 from Gothenburg University (Thesis: On the origin and assessment of biogenic halocarbons). She did two years of post doc studies at the Center for Marine Biotechnology and Biomedicine, Scripps Institution of Oceanography, UC San Diego, California US. In 2000 she joined AstraZeneca Gothenburg (former Mölndal) as a biotransformation scientist. The biotransformation support to projects within AZ has included profiling and identification of metabolites from in vitro and in vivo studies in both animals and humans, MIST evaluations and regulatory reporting. Her long experience in biotransformation studies in development is rare and she is a valuable addition to the team.
