Magnus Gisslén, professor of infectious diseases at the University of Gothenburg and senior physician at the infectious disease clinic at Sahlgrenska University Hospital, is one of three current candidates for the job as the next state epidemiologist, reports SVT Nyheter (Swedish news item). “I have the best job in the world today, but I think I can be of use to the authority and the country. I have been involved during several epidemics and worked a lot with HIV and AIDS. I think I have a background that could be suitable, both as a clinical infectious disease doctor and with extensive scientific experience in the field of infections. It would also be an exciting challenge,” Magnus Gisslén comments to SVT. The current state epidemiologist Anders Lindblom has a temporary assignment until the new state epidemiologist takes office at the end of June.
