Edmund Loh's Meningitis research featured in Wallenberg Foundation documentary film
Edmund Loh's research is featured in Wallenberg Foundation documentary film this month. The film follows his development and ambitions as a researcher and focuses on his research into the causes of Meningitis.
The bacterium Neisseria meningitidis is normally content to remain in the nose. But sometimes it enters the bloodstream and causes life-threatening meningitis. Wallenberg Academy Fellow Edmund Loh at Karolinska Institutet is trying to find the answer to why this happens by studying small RNA molecules in the bacterium. He hopes his research will lead to new treatment strategies.
