About Malin Lindén

Malin Lindén studied biotechnology at Chalmers University of Technology and graduated with a Master of Science in Bioengineering 2012. She was awarded the John Ericsson medal for outstanding scholarship from Chalmers. Malin started working as a research engineer in tumor biology at Sahlgrenska center for cancer research in 2015. Then, she performed a PhD in sarcoma biology and graduated in December 2021 with the thesis “FET fusion oncoproteins in sarcoma tumorigenesis- Interactions with the SWI/SNF chromatin remodeling complex and epigenetic effects”. During this time, Malin was an integral part in determining a molecular mechanism for tumor development in a subgroup of tumor types called FET sarcoma. Malin’s work has so far resulted in 6 publications (2022), and her first paper describing this oncogenic mechanism already has over 30 citations. Malin is currently working as a postdoc at Sahlgrenska center for cancer research, where she explores the possibilities to identify novel drug targets in order to develop targeted therapies and ultimately treat all FET sarcomas.
