Akademiliv congratulates Madeleine Rådinger on the professorship! Her research group studies the immune system in different types of asthma, to increase understanding of the immune system’s regulation in subgroups of asthma, with emphasis on microRNAs. Recently, her group published a study showing clear differences in microRNA expression between people with allergic asthma and non-allergic asthma, suggesting that these microRNAs affect the immune system. The goal is to contribute to targeted treatment and diagnosis by identifying molecules that drive the development of asthma symptoms. Madeleine Rådinger is also the director of the Krefting Research Center.
