I am an immunologist, active in allergy research since 1997. My own research has conserned allergens and immune regulation in allergy and inflammatory diseases. My main present research interests are 1) immune modulation by vaccination, in particular allergen specific immunotherapy, and 2) characterisation of T-cell responses to autoantigens. Competence in protein chemistry, molecular biology, cell biology, immunology and clinical evaluation. Experience on characterisation of T-cell responses, allergen characterisation, experimental allergy/asthma models, vaccine-/adjuvant research and clinical trials.
PhD in medical science (biochemistry) at Karolinska Institutet 1990, thesis title: “Isolation and characterization of variant forms of secretin and vasoactive intestinal peptide -with special emphasis on their biosynthesis”
Postdoc at Karolinska Institutet and Stockholm University: Molecular biology, membrane protein biology
Postdoc, scientist and senior scientist at Karolinska Institutet, Dept of Medicine, Clin Immunology and Allergy Unit. Allergy research, Associate professor in molecular immunology 2001.
Director of Immunology and coordinator of FP7 EU project at Viscogel AB 2010-2014.
