I worked for several research centers in Scandinavia. Before moving the US I worked at the Sweden RC. It’s a beautiful and professional office with highly interested in people who love what they are doing.

I did research on animals mainly, finding out what makes them get diseases and what prevented them from getting it. As we all know, they eat and drink what ever comes on their paths, and still they are very strong and don’t get affected by it.

Interesting part of it is that I need to find out how this can be related back to human beings. How come humans who are according to many derivates from the apes, an animal specie. How come we get effected. These questions keeps popping up and I received a grant on my thesis about this subject. Which provided me the chance to live and work in the states for a short period of time.


The start was interesting. The moment I got to work for the new people who are here to help me with my thesis. They showed me around and told me the ins and outs. I consulted with my previous colleagues about the whole move. And they helped me prepare so I can already start on my thesis. For my medical insurance I found a company which covers me globally called Housing was done via a friend of mine who was already living in the states and own transportation was not necessary for the beginning. The public transport was better then I expected.

By the way, the housing is very typical but fun. It was just like what you expected from a movie, but then in real life.

Second part was the culture difference. In Scandinavia we wake up early and go to bed early that is sort of our rhythm. But here it is wake up early and go to bed late. They feel that the evenings are a very important part of the day and I start to see why.


My research is about Zoonoses, hence the name of my blog. I should have started with this post but well I’m writing about it now. Zooneses are diseases which can be transferred from people to animals. And this is something very interesting.

Sometimes people carry a disease without knowing and it can still affect the animal negatively. Also it is highly interested in which animals will be affected as by far not all are sensitive to our diseases.

One of these diseases is something I am now really into. It’s a very common one for us humans but not for the animal realm. I will write about that soon as I want to keep it close to heart at the moment.


My friends back over from Sweden have send me some very valuable information which helps me solve this puzzle a little bit further.

I am very grateful for all the great help I receive from many people around the world that I have encountered. Also the people here in the states are very generous with their time in helping me with this.

The breakthrough is that I can now determine some parts of a disease and the effect it has. What I did was turn it around.

What animal diseases can have an effect on humans. That was easy information to find as people found that the most interesting to do research on. That information I have played against itself to find out more about my research. And luckily with success thanks to my friends.

I hope I can post a first chapter of my thesis relatively soon. But of course I cannot do anything as long as the information is still incomplete. It will make a fool out of me and my friends who helped. Better safe than sorry.
