Research and academic activities

My research fields are inflammation markers in allergic disease and pathophysiological mechanisms of exogeneous glucocorticoid induced effects in children with asthma and allergic disease including effects on growth, bone and collagen turnover and effects on growth hormone, the insulin-like growth factor axis, and on skin. I have a long term interest in treatment of paediatric asthma and rhinitis.

My thesis "Knemometry in the Assessment of Systemic Activity of Exogeneous glucocorticosteroids in Children with Asthma and Rhinitis" was published in April 1996 (FaDL, Copenhagen).

I have published extensively in the medical literature (see Publications) and at international scientific meetings. I am a co-Editor of several scientific journals. I have been and I am a mentor for PhD and other students.

On several occasions our clinic has been evaluated and passed internal and external audits of clinical studies.
