About Sara

Sara is a biochemist by education who after spending some years conducting research in the field of immunology at the Karolinska Institute in Stockholm, Sweden moved to Brussels to work in Policy and Advocacy. She is a lupus patient herself and was diagnosed at the age of 16 and is very passionate about patient advocacy and how to best link the patient needs with the scientific perspective.

 

After giving birth to her first son, Elias, she started her own consultancy helping organisations with the management of multi-stakeholder projects at EU level. She might be a familiar face to some of you since she previously was part of the Lupus Europe board of trustees. Fun fact, during 2019 she ran the 5-borough series in New York to show that lupus patients can do anything they set their minds to. The 5-borough series is a series of races where you run all the 5 boroughs in New York during one year which includes 3 half-marathons, one 16 km and one 10 km races.
