MD, Professor

”   Our main scientific interest is in inflammatory pulmonary diseases, with a certain emphasis on sarcoidosis, where we study disease mechanisms and origin e.g. by applying a method pioneered by our group to identify disease-specific antigens. We combine clinical research with studies involving cellular immunology, protein analyses, epidemiology and genetics. Our studies have identified accumulations […] ”

Smoking-induced autoimmunity

Johan Öckinger
PhD, Senior Postdoc

” Cigarette smoking has been linked to risk of disease or to disease phenotype in a number of autoimmune disorders, such as rheumatoid arthritis and multiple sclerosis. The local microenvironment, such as that present in the lung, may determine which antigens are presented, and also direct the alternative fates of effector and regulatory T cell subsets […] ”

Sarcoidosis - Grunewald

Johan Grunewald
MD, Professor

” Sarcoidosis is a pulmonary inflammatory disease of unknown etiology, affecting young middle aged people, with about 2000 new cases yearly in Sweden. 50-100 new sarcoidosis patients are investigated yearly with bronchoscopy and bronchoalveolar lavage (BAL), giving us access to cells at the focus of inflammation. Typically, there is an accumulation of Th1 cells to the […] ”

Åsa Wheelock
Associate professor

” Our research program can be broadly defined as developing a respiratory systems biology approach utilizing a range of ‘omics, bioinformatics, & statistical platforms to characterize molecular sub-phenotypes of chronic inflammatory lung diseases. We focus equal efforts on translational studies of the response to environmental exposures in patients with COPD and asthma, and innovation & methodology […] ”

Magnus Nord
MD, Associate Professor

” Inflammatory lung diseases such as asthma, sarcoidosis and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) are common diseases with a need for development of novel innovative treatments. To provide a basis for development of new therapeutic strategies, we use a translatory research approach linking basic mechanistic studies with clinical research to increase the molecular understanding of inflammatory […] ”

Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) - Sköld

Magnus Sköld
MD, Professor

” The prevalence of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) is increasing in most parts of the world including Sweden. The disease, treated or untreated, leads to a progressive loss of lung function over time. So far, no treatment modalities have been shown to restore lung function impairment. COPD is primarily an inflammatory disease of the peripheral […] ”

Allergic asthma - Grönneberg

Reidar Grönneberg
MD, Associate Professor

” Allergic asthma is an inflammatory airway disease characterised by bronchial hyperreactivity to a variety of stimuli such as inhaled allergens. We are interested in early inflammatory events in allergic asthma, to identify key components which could be used as disease markers, diagnostic tools or as targets for future treatments. For this reason, bronchoscopy with bronchoalveolar […] ”
