Researchersmarie-louise_redigerad_IMG_0924-2.jpg

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.

Marie Holmqvist

Marie is an MD and a Post-Doc at 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.   

_MG_5715-2.jpgBoel Brynedal

Research assistent at IMM. Boel is studying genetic, serologic, clinical and functional data to better understand RA and treatment response in RA patients.

_MG_5824-2.jpgMaria Schelin

Post doc in epidemiology. She is right now studying the relationship between physical activity and disease prognosis.
