Speaker Profile

Ph.D., Co-founder & CSO, Okomera

Sandra Jernström holds a PhD in cancer genetics from the University of Oslo, where she together with her colleagues integrated different omics data from a breast cancer cohort to better stratify the patients. She has expertise in high-throughput drug and siRNA screening of 2D and 3D cell culture models, where she explored the difference in drug resistance mechanisms seen between the culture models. Before joining Okomera, she worked as a postdoc at Karolinska Institute in Sweden, with the aim to develop a method to perform drug screening directly on patient biopsies in 3D, to be able to guide the treatment. For this project she won a significant research grant competition at the SLUSH conference in Finland in 2018. In 2020, she joined Okomera, where she leads the bio application team and is in charge of clinical partnerships to gain clinical validation of the technology.
