Year 2000, after more than a decade in the allergy in vitro diagnostic industry, I decided to upgrade my academic merits. I am still at Karolinska institutet, since 2010 heading the Therapeutic Immune Design Unit (TID). I am motivated by multidisciplinary projects bringing ideas from basic immunology via molecular constructions to clinical trials.
Our target area is allergy, asthma, neurodegenerative and autoimmune diseases. We combine in-depth immunological knowledge and our proprietory TID platform to design biomolecules with properties for superior diagnosis and curative treatment. We work in concert with adult and childrens clinics, use biobanked material, patient organisations, "Small pharma" and not least scientific collaborators from all over the world.
