Overall research activities

At the unit of Experimental Asthma and Allergy Research, Institutet of Environmental Medicine, Karolinska Institutet, we carry out basic as well as applied research around mechanisms in asthma and allergy, with a special focus on mast cell biology, leukotrienes and other mediators. From the unit we coordinate a number of large projects on the mechanisms of severe asthma and the value of biomarkers at diagnosis and treatment of asthma.
