Sara Sylvén

MD, post doc researcher at the Dep of Neuroscience, Psychiatry, Uppsala University. My research focus is psychiatric illness during pregnancy and the postpartum period, aiming to find new ways of detecting psychiatric symptoms during the perinatal period, as well as developing new treatments. I also have research interests in breastfeeding and gender dysphoria. Currently, I am starting a study on a new treatment option for depression during pregnancy, and have an ongoing interview study focusing on mothers of transgender individuals.
