About me

  • Adjunct Professor of Gastroenterology at the Department of Medicine, Solna as
    of 1 July 2021. Primary position: Consultant and head of research at Ersta


  • Peter Thelin Schmidt researches inflammatory bowel disease and diverticular
    disease (pockets that form in the gut) as well as colonoscopic methods. His
    research is based on the extensive clinical work being done in these fields
    at Ersta Hospital.
    Thelin Schmidt is involved in treatment studies exploring how new potent
    drugs should be used and which patients can be expected to respond to which
    treatment. Another line of research concerns the increased risk of colorectal
    cancer with IBD, where his group has helped to improve the diagnosis of early
    cancer and cancer precursors in these patients. Thelin Schmidt is also
    engaged in a collaboration with research groups in Sweden and Norway to
    investigate how AI can be used during a colonoscopy to detect pathological
    lesions, and in another with preclinical research groups studying the bio-
    logical mechanisms that give rise to and drive IBD.
