Dr. Mathis’ laboratory studies T cell differentiation, in particular the maturation and selection of the T cell repertoire in the thymus, and the cellular and molecular influences on T cell responses in the periphery. She is a pioneer in the growing field of immunometabolism, and her work ranges from autoimmunity and type-1 diabetes, to adipose tissue and skeletal muscle plasticity.

About the Ulf von Euler Lecture

The Ulf von Euler Lecture is an official annual named lecture of Karolinska Institutet. It was instituted by decision of the faculty at KI upon an initiative taken by Ulf von Euler's former students at the time of his passing away in 1983. The intention of the lecture is that it should be given on a subject from one of the fields where Ulf von Euler made major contributions or a field where he today would have taken an interest, were he still alive and active.
