Visited Naestved in Denmark Friday to discuss implications of the fact Roskilde and Naestved breast cancer units are merging into one. Naestved has the oldest population in Denmark, and they have also the largest breast cancer unit in Denmark. Interesting.
Some quite random pics below.
A walk down memory lane by touch-down ZRH Flughafen. Short visit, best country in the world.

Yesterday, we had a prominent guest here at Medeon, Captain and adventurer Johan Wiklund, who gave his story about flying a mini-aircraft from Nordkap to Cape of good hope in South Africa. Find his blog here. Inspiring!
Today, we had to say goodbye to Amanda, who will focus on her studies this semester. Amanda has been a super asset as my assistant and administrator for the team. Good news though, we are now happy to welcome Frida as Amandas successor.
Jeanette joined as a CRA trainee quite recently, so today we were actually six persons for lunch at my favourite place, Ribersborgs kallbadhus.
Today I am visiting Karolinska Solna (check!) and Karolinska Huddinge (as we speak). Long day.
Wish I could just make a clock stop now and then, time flies so fast, escpecially in December for some reason. We had a traditional Swedish "julbord" at the casino in Malmö a week ago, and concluded that none of us are gamblers.. always thinking of the odds ratio to win, and the gambling seems pointless.
A bit of a turbulent week just passed by, and a week of site initiations lies ahead, also quite a lot of meetings, and our Pharma Development Group, last meeting of the year,
Already looking forward to my favourite working days of the year: Between Christmas and New Year. Everyting is quiet and you can kill the to-do list you never had time for during the year.
Next stop Lund, site initiation visit tomorrow.
I went to Uppsala Thursday to hold an oncology and RECIST training for another CRO, Scandinavian CRO. Some of the CRAs had no previous oncology experience, and it went well I think. Once you know how to do the calculations to dermine Stable Disease (SD), Partial Response (PR), Complete Response (CR), and Progressive Disease (SD) it is not so tricky to do the check for this when monitoring. It is just very important for all oncology CRAs to know how it works in order to ensure high quality primary endpoint data for sponsors.

A marathon meeting week is over, starting with BioEurope in Cologne last Sunday, ending with the Nordic MDS meeting in Copenhagen. BioEurope was a huge event with a new record of 3651 attendees from 63 countries. I met with potential new clients or partners from Europe and China, and I went to the gene and cell therapy development sessions.
Now catching up on everyting: Briefing book, synopsis, pre-clinicial reports, clinical reports, site management, start up activities, presentations, target product profile, etc etc etc for various projects. At least it is never boring...
