Mattias Bronge

PhD student

I am a medical doctor and PhD-student in Hans Grönlunds research group, at the Institution of Clinical Neuroscience, KI. My research focuses around the immunology of autoimmune neurological diseases.

Research description

My PhD-project "Identification of novel autoantigens in multiple sclerosis" centers around the pathological T cells and their target autoantigens in multiple sclerosis. By using novel T cell reactivity platform developed in our group, we aim to identify previously unknown autoantigens and characterize the autoreactive T cells. The long term aim is to discover new targets for better diagnostics and ultimately curative treatment strategies.
