K.G. Jebsen Coeliac Disease Research Centre
The primary objective of our centre is to translate recent huge advances in the basic understanding of the pathogenesis of coeliac disease to the clinic – to improve disease diagnostics, to implement novel treatments and to identify new therapeutic targets for this common disease.
The secondary objective is to become a clinical research site at the international forefront which will provide optimal patient care and which will be a unique training site for basic scientists and clinicians.

Identification of narrow T-cell phenotype in coeliac disease
May 13, 2019 4:06 PM
Post.doc Asbjørn Christophersen has spear-headed the work that lead to identification of a narrow phenotype of gluten specific CD4+ T cells. This cell subset is also present in other autoimmune conditions and could be a target for future disease therapy.
