Our research goal is to understand the basic pathogenic mechanisms behind autoimmune diseases and cancer. To do this we are identifying and functionally analysing the genes that control autoimmune diseases. We primarily use animal models for this, in which it is possible to identify genetic causes of complex diseases.
We are using this knowledge to develop new diagnostics and vaccines for treatment of autoimmune diseases, primarily rheumatoid arthritis, and to improve immunotherapy of cancer.
