To get a rheumatic joint disease leads to enormous changes in your life. When you’re affected in childhood or adolescence the impact on your daily life becomes even bigger. In our research group we work on several different aspects of the disease. You research is therefore focused on both epidemiological questions about prognosis and comorbidities as well as on immunological mechanisms in the joints.


The overall aim of our research is to facilitate the transition of new knowledge from the preclinical to the clinical setting and thus answer important questions raised both by the patients, parents and the physicians.
