Rheumatology

Organisational unit: Research group

Description

Rheumatology is a separate research group within the Department of Clinical Sciences, Malmö, from 2021.

Epidemiologic aspects, prognostic factors for clinical outcomes and early biomarkers for rheumatic diseases are investigated.

The projects are conducted in close collaboration with other research groups at the University and national and international neworks, and coo
