Research in the Svensson Lab

The Svensson lab focuses on the interaction between the immune system and tissue stromal cells in inflammation and autoimmunity. We have a special interest in Rheumatoid Arthritis, an autoimmune disease characterized by chronic joint inflammation and subsequent joint destruction.

 

Currently our main research focus is on the functional interaction between innate lymhpoid cells (ILCs) and the joint-lining stromal cell subset, fibroblast-like synoviocytes. However, we are also interested in the role of other subsets of innate-like immune cells (e.g. MAIT cells, iNKT cells & gamma-delta T cells) in the development of Rheumatoid Arthritis.
