Linda Thunberg has a PhD in Organic Chemistry from Gothenburg University. During her 15 years at AstraZeneca R&D Gothenburg she has built up great knowledge in chromatography, both in analytical and preparative scale. She has been part of building up a large-scale separation laboratory and introducing preparative chromatography to the Gothenburg site. As an experienced separation scientist, she has adopted various chromatographic techniques, and is specialized in supercritical fluid chromatography (SFC). Her focus has mainly been on both chiral and achiral separation problems of small pharmaceutical compounds in mg to kg scale. As the trend in pharmaceutical industry is to develop medicines based on synthetic biomolecules, she has lately broadened her chromatographic competence by working on separation of larger molecules like peptides, oligonucleotides and conjugates of them.
