Organisation profile

Aims and objectives

We aim to be  a Center of excellence in inflammation targeting diseases such as psoriasis, contact and atrophic dermatitis, asthma and other allergic diseases.

"

Focus areas

Our focus areas:

COPSAC studies the causes and mechanisms in the development of asthma, allergy and eczema based on birth cohorts using genetic, immunological and particularly micro biome profiling of the children.

The Allergy Research Centre studies 'big data' in allergy and eczema to identify new disease groups. Also, they characterise the micro biome of healthy skin and those with eczema to increase insight into eczema emergence and treatments.

 

The Allergy Clinic studies inhalation, food and drug hypersensitivity emphasising on allergen-specific immunotherapy, anaphylaxis, and immunological  mechanisms.

 

The Clinic for Skin diseases studies the skin barrier and the interaction with the immune system in the development of eczema disorders. Furthermore, the Clinic investigates risk factors, genetics and clinical aspects in children with psoriasis.
