The competition for the fellowship is tough: this year 60 qualified applicants competed over three fellowships.

Ragnar Söderberg Fellowship in Medicine provides long-term funding for promising young researchers with innovative ideas and proven scientific excellence. Mohammad Asghar will receive SEK 8 million in funding from the Ragnar Söderberg Foundation.

In his project, Muhammad Asghar will investigate the extent to which infectious diseases drive cellular aging. He will also investigate if there is a long-term hidden cost of chronic asymptomatic infections on cellular aging in humans.
