Several biological processes are investigated, with special focus on inflammation and mechanisms of cardiovascular comorbidity.

For these purposes, the group collaborates closely with the immune expertise at the Research Institute of Internal Medicine, Oslo University Hospital.

The research integrates genetic, biological, environmental and clinical data in a translational approach, combining data from clinical samples, biobanks and health registries.
