LIH researchers aim to understand the early onset, impact of environmental factors and predisposition to diseases with a strong immunological component.
Understanding how exposures from personal and external sources, including e.g. diet, physical activity, pollutants etc. interact with our own unique characteristics over time, such as body composition, genetics, physiology, epigenetics, microbiome and auto-immune responses impact our health is a subject of great research interest at the LIH.
LIH builds on ongoing work in the fields of allergy, Cancer, Autoimmune Disorders (such as Rheumatoid Arthritis (RA) and Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD) and Neurodegenerative diseases (such as MS and Parkinson’s disease) to study how immune competence or dysfunctions are shaped by long-term exposure to the so-called exposome, how autoimmunity is shaped by attack of the body cells by the immune system and how interventional or preventative approaches can result in health improvement.
