On 15 January 2017, Joanna Kvist will take up the post of senior lecturer in physiotherapy, specializing in human movement science, at Karolinska Institutet’s Department of Neurobiology, Care Sciences and Society.

“After 23 years at Linköping University I am looking forward to take on new challenges at KI, where I hope to make a positive contribution to education and research,” Joanna Kvist says.

The overall focus of Joanna’s research is sports-related injuries, particularly knee damage. The aim of her research is to ensure that those suffering injury during physical activity receive the best possible treatment and are able to return to living a physically active life.

”In order to achieve this, we also need to train new physiotherapists and researchers to ensure the supply of dedicated, knowledgeable colleagues”, Joanna Kvist says.
