Meet our scientists

Lydia Michaut, Ph.D
Chief Scientific Officer

Lydia’s 25-year career has spanned molecular biology, genetics and immunology, making her an expert in the bioanalytical platforms needed to support Biologics and Advanced Therapy Medicinal Products. She acquired her regulated bioanalysis expertise in the development of biotherapeutics and gene therapies in large pharma, global CRO and consultancy, and supported the successful regulatory submissions of multiple biotherapeutics to various health agencies worldwide.

Oskar Johannson, Ph.D
Senior Project Manager

Oskar has a PhD in Biology and worked for 10 years at the University on Gothenburg on host-microbe interactions and cell signalling. He joined TATAA in 2021 where he is leading a team of scientists developing and validating PCR assays to support various sample analysis projects, with a focus on biodistribution studies under ISO17025 compliance. Oskar is also instrumental in the team implementing Good Laboratory Practices (GLP) at TATAA Biocenter.
