I was born in 1934 and raised in a suburb of Stockholm, where my father was a school headmaster. My medical studies began at the Karolinska Institute in 1954. During the course in obstetrics and gynecology I came into contact with Carl Gemzell. He worked as physician on one of the wards but was also conducted research at the Gustav V Research Institute. I was interested to learn the laboratory, and he told me about his work on human pituitary gonadotrophins and growth hormone.
