About Magdalena Claeson
I am a consultant dermatologist and a postdoctoral researcher with a PhD in Medical Science.
Between 2013 and 2017, I served as a course coordinator for the Dermatology course during the Programme in Medicine at the University of Gothenburg.
Research focus area
My area of expertise is within skin cancer epidemiology. For example, I have published data from a prospective cohort study with 40,000 participants where we identified risk factors fo the common skin cancer keratoacanthoma: older age, male sex, fair skin type, inability to tan, smoking and alcohol (Claeson et al. JAMA Dermatol. 2020).
My primary research interest is in melanoma of the skin, where I have published a study on the alarming increase in melanoma incidence in Western Sweden during the past decades (Claeson et al. Melanoma Res. 2012). Further, we have studied thin (≤ 1 mm thickness) melanoma and have shown that thin tumours constitute the majority of melanomas diagnosed in Western Sweden (55%) (Claeson et al. Acta Derm Venereol 2017), resulting in high health care costs and suffering from the patients. People diagnosed with a thin melanoma generally have high survival rates. However, thin tumours still cause a substantial proportion of deaths due to the volume of disease. That is why I have focused my research also on identifying prognostic factors for thin melanoma. In a population-based registry study from Queensland, Australia, we found that tumours located on the scalp have 6 times higher risk of death (Claeson et al. Br J Dermatol 2020). Since 2020, I am an invited member of the Swedish Melanoma Study Group (SMSG).
From 2018 until 2020, I was working as a postdoctoral fellow in skin cancer epidemiology and experimental dermatology at the Queensland Institute of Medical Research (QIMR) Berghofer and at the University of Queensland in Brisbane, Australien.
