Lectures and seminars CTMR Bug Corner: Nils Landegren (Uppsala University) - "Cytokine autoantibodies as a cause of critical infection”
Dr. Nils Landegren is a researcher at Uppsala University's Institute of Molecular Medicine and Biomedical Research (IMBIM).
Dr. Landegren's research primarily revolves around unraveling the mysteries of autoimmune diseases. Our immune systems are protecting us against invading organisms, but it can also give rise to detrimental responses directed against our own bodies. Autoimmunity is one of the leading causes of morbidity world-wide. His team performs large-scale analysis of autoimmune responses to understand disease mechanisms and provide better means for diagnostics. With a particular focus on the striking and poorly understood sex differences in risks for autoimmune diseases.
