Head of the Danish MS Environmental-Genetic Group at DMSC
Associate Professor, Institute of Clinical Medicine, University of Copenhagen
Leader of the Danish MS Environmental-Genetic Group in DMSC, Rigshospitalet since 2007, working in close collaboration with Helle Bach Søndergaard. My main research interests are the importance of genes and environmental factors for MS risk, disease course and treatment response.
I am Danish PI within the International MS Genetic Consortium (IMSGC) where collaboration has led to some of the largest genetic studies so far in MS and the last MS replication study, has now led us to know about 233 gene variants that are associated with MS (link: www.imsgenetics.org). I am Danish PI in the EU Horizon project MultipleMS, that aim to in investigate multiple manifestations of genetic and non-genetic factors in MS, disentangled with a multi-omics approach to accelerate personalized medicine (link: https://www.multiplems.eu/).
