Martin Rottenberg group
Our research focus lies in the regulation of immune responses that control the infection with Mycobacterium tuberculosis. We study the role of major molecular controllers of T cell and macrophage functions in bacterial control after infection and vaccination.

The host – microbe interaction is of prime importance to understand why some people get recurrent or complicated infections, while others do not. Our primary focus is infections in the urinary tract, and the skin. We specifically investigate the early defence mechanisms which protect the body from invading bacteria, and how we can exploit these natural strategies for possible therapeutic purposes.
The world's infectious disease No 1
In Sweden, tuberculosis is a small problem, but globally it is one of the biggest health threats. WHO and UN wants to eradicate the disease by 2030. At Karolinska Institutet, researchers unite under the umbrella of a new centre to contribute.
