Head of the Connective Tissue Disease Clinic, Dept. of Dermatology, Bispebjerg Hospital, collaboration with Rheumatologists about SLE, dermatomyositis and systemic sclerosis

 

Main research areas

To non-invasively diagnose and monitor treatment of various skin diseases using optical imaging. Main focus: keratinocyte carcinomas.

To explore the micromorphology of the skin in vivo and describe the changes over time and specific treatment effects on cells and skin structure.

Research/development of novel treatments for systemic sclerosis.
