The Multifactorial disease genetics team conducts genetic epidemiology of multifactorial diseases, that is diseases that are caused by an interplay between several genetic and environmental factors. The focus of the group is genetics of autoimmune diseases such as type 1 diabetes and multiple sclerosis. The goal is to identify genetic and environmental risk factors and thereby highlight important pathways involved in disease pathogenesis.

Research projects:
Is the MHC2TA gene involved in susceptibility to type 1 diabetes?
Why has the incidence of type 1 diabetes doubled in Sweden over the past 20 years?
Which genetic variations are involved in susceptibility to major depression?
Which genetic variations are involved in susceptibility to bipolar disease?
Which genetic and environmental factors are involved in the susceptibility of multiple sclerosis?
