About me

  • Dr Charlotte Hedin is a specialist in gastroenterology and internal medicine
    at the Karolinska University Hospital in Stockholm. She completed her PhD
    "Microbial, immunological, phenotypic and genetic markers of risk: aspects of
    Crohn’s disease that are shared by unaffected siblings" at King’s College
    London and Queen Mary University of London. In 2017 she was awarded a UEG
    Rising Star award for her research in IBD and in 2018 she was awarded the
    Karolina prize for “Exemplary patient flow and quality work” at the
    Karolinska Hospital. She holds a clinical post-doctorate from the Karolinska
    Hospital. She is a member of the Swedish Organisation for the study of IBD
    (SOIBD)) and is committee member for the European Crohn’s and Colitis
    Organisation (ECCO). Dr Hedin’s research focusses on: 1. Extraintestinal
    inflammation in IBD inlcuding PSC, 2. Delineating pathogenic pathways in IBD
    through studying at-risk individuals (families of IBD patients) and 3.
    Defining the process of mucosal healing.
