"Outstanding abstract": Alicia Edin, MIMS Clinical Research Fellow, medical doctor and PhD-student, was the second scientist who attracted the interest of Dagens Medicin. Her abstract was awarded as "one of the outstanding abstracts" at the conference and she received a travel stipend. She presented a metabolomic study on the metabolite profiles of patients who suffered from Community-Acquired Pneumonia, CAP. The study, performed in collaboration with the Swedish Metabolomics Centre, showed that it is possible to use a metabolite fingerprint as a tool for faster diagnosis and cure of these patients.
