PhD-Students

_MG_5480-2.jpgAnna Ilar

PhD-student in epidemiology at IMM. Investigates if different airborne exposures during worklife, like inhaling diesel exhaust, may affect the risk of getting RA.

_MG_5480-2.jpgLouise Hedenstierna

Louise is an MD, specialised in rheumatology and internal medicine. She is also a PhD-student in epidemiology at IMM. Her project has a clinical approach with focus on improving the knowledge about how individual factors influence clinical outcome in rheumatoid arthritis (RA). The project is aiming to better understanding about how we can individualize the treatment at an early stage.

_MG_5480-2.jpgLiselotte Tidblad

MD and PhD-student in epidemiology at IMM. Investigates how comorbidities and obesity in early RA patients affect the choice of treatment and treatment response.

Camilla Bengtsson

Camilla is a research associate in epidemiology. Her doctoral thesis was based on the EIRA material. She built up the greater part of the EIRA structure and is today responsible for the database.

 

In her research, Camilla is studying the relationship between RA and factors such as socio-economic status and psychosocial stress as well as female hormonal factors.

IMG_5916-(1).jpgHelga Westerlind

Post doc at IMM. Helgas research focuses on factors influencing the progression of RA. Part of her work is investigating how modifiable lifestyle factors are associated with how the disease develops. Another part is identification of groups of patients with similar disease outcomes and specific risk factors for these groups.

Boel Brynedal

Research assistent at IMM. Boel is studying genetic, serologic, clinical

and functional data to better

understand RA and treatment 

response in RA patients.

Marie Holmqvist

Marie is an MD and a Post-Doc affiliated to IMM. Her main research focus is on RA patients who also suffer from cardiovascular diseases. She aims to identify why RA patients, to such a great extent compared to the general population, suffer from cardiovascular diseases.
