Unit profile


We conduct several research projects involving children with rheumatic and inflammatory diseases. The overarching goal of our studies is to map the course of diseases, prognosis, and outcomes. We aim to utilize the newfound knowledge in clinical practice to improve the care of our patients.


Being diagnosed with a rheumatic disease entails significant life changes, especially when it occurs during childhood or adolescence. Our research encompasses several rheumatic and inflammatory conditions, with a particular focus on juvenile idiopathic arthritis (JIA), but also other diseases such as Kawasaki's disease and MIS-C (hyperinflammation following COVID-19 infection). We conduct both clinical and laboratory-based research, ranging from epidemiological studies on prognosis and comorbidity to immunological mechanisms in the body and its target organs. By combining clinical and laboratory-based methods, we have a strong foundation for exploring a range of questions, aiming to map the course of diseases, their evolution over time, and possible treatment strategies. Under "Projects," you can learn more about the active projects in the group.
