Professor of Medical Inflammation Research at the Department of Medical Biochemistry and Biophysics and the Department of Medicine, Solna since 2008.
Medical research into inflammation looks at the basic mechanisms that govern chronic inflammatory diseases such as rheumatoid arthritis, MS, diabetes, Alzheimer's disease and atherosclerosis. This is research that straddles basic research and clinical research. Genetic variations can make some people more susceptible to this type of disease.
The research group has discovered a genetic variant that increases the production of free radicals. The hypothesis is that this could reduce inflammation.
