Asthma & Allergies

Allergy is the most common chronic illness in society affecting more than 25% of the population in industrialized countries. Allergy is caused by an inappropriate immune reaction towards environmental exposure of e.g. furred animals, pollen, dust mites or food components, which may lead to asthma, rhinitis or eczema. Our major research effort is focused on development of new strategies for improved allergy and asthma diagnosis and treatments, targeting the cause of the disease rather than just ameliorating the symptoms.

” Understanding mechanisms of vaccination Few medical inventions have affected and saved so many lives as vaccines against infectious diseases. The challenges we are facing today with developing effective vaccines to several of the world’s most serious infectious diseases (HIV-1/AIDS, malaria, tuberculosis) epidemics as well as designing therapeutic vaccines to tumors and/or allergies require a much […] ”

PhD, Associate professor

” Our goal is to improve the quality of life for patients with chronic inflammatory disease or cancer. The approach is “translational”, i.e. we aim to bring research results from the lab to clinical application, in the form of improved diagnostic tools and curative treatments. We work within the following research areas: Multiple sclerosis (MS) Our […] ”

”   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 […] ”

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 […] ”
