About Hanna Gyllensten

Hanna Gyllensten is a registered pharmacist with a background in community pharmacy and as a ward pharmacist. She is PhD (Medicine) since 2014 and her thesis was exploring the economic impact of drug-related morbidity, including e.g., adverse drug reactions and sub-therapeutic effects of drug therapy. Hanna is now a senior lecturer at University of Gothenburg and postdoc at Insurance Medicine, Karolinska institutet in Stockholm.
