Jonathan Grip

PhD student, resident

Me. Born and raised in Stockholm, I studied medicine at Karolinska Institutet from which I graduated in 2010. I am currently working as a resident in Anesthesiology and Intensive Care in parallel of pursuing a PhD in the field of ICU-metabolism. Outside of the hospital I am occasionally involved in Adventure and Wilderness Medicine as a doctor at, for example, various races around the Stockholm area.

My research is within the field of mitochondrial (dys)function and lactate metabolism in patients with severe sepsis/septic shock. With Olav Rooyackers as main supervisor I started out with mitochondrial isolations in the lab during summers in medical school and as I progressed towards a more clinical focus, so did my project. Right now we are focusing in using isotopically labelled lactate to describe lactate metabolism in septic ICU-patients. In 2012 I received a fellowship from ESPEN (The European Society for Clinical Nutrition and Metabolism) to develop this method.

Fun fact. In the summer of 2015 I am heading an expedition to investigate the abandoned Swedish/Sovietian coalmining village Pyramiden at Svalbard.
