I am a postdoctoral researcher at the Karolinska Institute, Sweden and my research aims to characterise immune responses to virus infections in multiple sclerosis, and how these may influence disease development or progression. Our team’s work investigates how adaptive immune responses to common viruses or autoantigens can damage the central nervous system in neurological autoimmune diseases. By using a variety of molecular and immunological techniques, we aim to characterise autoreactive responses in depth, with the aim to provide better understanding of how disease occurs and ultimately provide targets for development of future therapies.
