New professor will explore the mysteries of the immune system

Bent Deleuran has just been appointed as new professor of inflammatory diseases at Aarhus University and Aarhus University Hospital. Here he will conduct research into how the immune system works, and how knowledge about it can be used to slow the development of chronic diseases such as arthritis, cancer and asthma.

Inflammatory disease is a shared designation for a wide variety of inflammatory diseases that are often short-term and benign. However, some of them develop into chronic or life-threatening conditions, and it is the development of these that Professor Bent Deleuran and his fellow researchers are particularly interested in. 

They carry out research into how the immune system works. With better insight into the functioning of the immune system, researchers will be able to more specifically intervene in the processes that govern the immune system and thereby – in the long term – offer patients better treatment, among other things in the form of personalised medicine. 

Bent Deleuran is a new professor at the Department of Biomedicine, where he has previously worked as professor with special responsibilities (MSO).
