” Part of our research focus is to understand the disease mechanism behind the autoimmune reaction in MS and a possible viral etiology. Our hypothesis is that specific autoimmunity is triggered by immune response against host proteins incorporated into viral particles. We are therefore interested in common viruses that can establish latency and reactivate within the […] ”

Medical microbal pathogenesis

Birgitta Henriques

Birgitta Henriques Normark
Professor, MD

” Our research targets epidemiology, host-microbial interactions and pathogenesis of infectious diseases with a major focus on respiratory tract pathogens. We aim at understanding mechanisms for infectious disease development, healthy carriage, mucosal infections, invasive disease, and early clearance of the infection. Moreover, we try to find novel targets for vaccine and antimicrobial drugs and we evaluate […] ”

Infection immunology

Kristina Broliden

Kristina Broliden
Professor, MD, PhD

” Research on infectious diseases includes several research groups at a number of departments at Karolinska Institutet. The research area includes HIV, malaria and respiratory infections and involves many research groups at the Department of Medicine, Solna. The interaction between experimental and clinical microbiology, epidemiology, biostatistics, public health and clinical infection research is large and the research […] ”

Professor, MD

” Cytomegalovirus (CMV) infects and is carried by 70-100% of the world’s population, but rarely gives symptoms in the healthy population. In immunosuppressed patients, such as organ or stem cell transplant patients, AIDS patients and neonates, CMV may cause very serious disease and even death. CMV disease in these groups of patients has also high-lightened the […] ”

Kristina Broliden
Professor, MD, PhD

” Genital mucosal barriers against HIV-infection Environmental factors including hormonal contraceptive use, genital infections and seminal fluid itself affect the susceptibility to HIV infection as demonstrated in epidemiological and experimental studies. The molecular mechanisms behind these findings are however poorly defined. Our group aims to study how the human female genital tract is affected by these […] ”
