Marcus Claesson did his BSc in Chemical Engineering and MSc in Bioinformatics at Chalmers University of Technology in Gothenburg, Sweden. After his MSc Thesis project at AstraZeneca Mölndal, he worked at the start-up biotechnology company AngioGenetics. This was interrupted by the opportunity to start a PhD at the Microbiology Department at University College Cork, where the main part of the project was dedicated to sequence and analyse a commensal Lactobacillus strain. Once completed, Marcus worked for at the campus-based biotechnology company Alimentary Health, data mining bifidobacteria for beneficial probiotic traits. This was followed by a longer postdoctoral position in Dr. Paul O'Toole's lab in the Microbiology Department, focusing on the bioinformatics involved in the ELDERMET metagenomics project aiming to sequence the gut-bacteria of hundreds of elderly Irish citizens. Marcus is now a Principal Investigator at UCC with main research interests in the role of microbiota in inflammatory bowel disease, and bioinformatics methods development.
