The ExPT Lab works with increased oxidative stress which has been associated with several chronic diseases including atherosclerosis, liver steatosis, diabetes and cancer.
Section for Experimental Animal Models
The section studies all aspects of the development of models for human and veterinary diseases in mammals. This includes animal welfare related concerns as well as laboratory related aspects. Basic scientific disciplines are pathology, pharmacology and immunology. The section has a strong focus on in vivo pharmacology and the role of the immune system in metabolic-inflammatory diseases.
The LIFEPHARM Centre is based at the section which also hosts;
Our research group focuses on novel regulatory mechanisms that control the immune system and on development of future immune diagnostic tools based on nanotechnology.
Through animal models we aim for a better understanding of inflammatory-metabolic human diseases and psychiatric diseases.
MiNI aims at investigating how microbes and compounds in our environment, in particular food components, affect the immune system.
We study the disease mechanisms behind especially heart- and infectious diseases. We work with client-owned dogs and pigs bred for research purposes.
