Physicians and scientists at Uppsala Centre of Excellence

Eva Tiensuu Janson M.D., Ph.D
Professor of Medicine

Dr. Eva Tiensuu Janson serves as Professor of Medicine at the Department of Medical Sciences, and since 2014, as Dean of 

Faculty of Medicine at Uppsala University. She is chair of the Nordic Neuroendocrine Tumor Group and member of the Executive Committee of the European Neuroendocrine Tumor Society. Her translational research has rendered more than 100 publications in peer-reviewed journals, and focuses on the genetics and tumor biology of neuroendocrine tumors. Recently, she has identified new mutations causing the inherited form of small intestinal neuroendocrine tumors.

Another important research field concerns rapidly proliferating neuroendocrine carcinomas, for which the Nordic group has a comprehensive research program. She also has a special interest in research ethics and was scientific secretary in the local research ethics committee at Uppsala University between 2001 and 2003, and thereafter member of the central research ethics board in Sweden from 2004 until 2009. Eva Tiensuu Janson served as head of Department of Medical Sciences between 2009 and 2014 and chaired the Medical Education program committee between 2012 and 2015.
