Jan Palmblad group

This research group started in 1975, moved to Huddinge in 1998, and still conducts translational research on the function of, and interactions between, neutrophils and endothelial cells, cells constituting an important part of the acute inflammatory response.

In addition, the group pursues research on effect of omega-3 fatty acids on inflammation in Alzheimer´s disease, on mechanisms for acute drug-induced and chronic neutropenias, on angiogenesis in hematological and gynecological disorders and on Gaucher´s disease.

Studies of effects of leukotrienes have been a red line since the start of the research group.

The research is translational, involving expertise in hematology, rheumatology, basic chemistry, nutrition etc.
