After obtaining my PhD in Medical Microbiology and Immunology from Aarhus University, I joined Prof Lars Fugger’s group, where I have been mainly involved in the development and characterisation of transgenic mouse models for various autoimmune diseases. I am now employed at the Department of Clinical Medicine, Aarhus University Hospital where I pursue my research interest in understanding the interplay between genetic and environmental variables in chronic inflammatory diseases. Another research focus is to understand how a small population of orexin-producing neurons is involved in the immune-mediated sleep disorder narcolepsy, and in behaviour in general.Christiane’s research is focussed on identification of disease causing pathways and the role of MS susceptibility variants with an emphasis on non-immune cell mediated mechanisms. She is also involved in international collaborations to explore novel cutting edge technology in order to elucidate disease progression and neuroinflammation.
