Position: Associate professor

Education: Masters degree in protein biochemistry and immunology, Cand. Scient.

Research area: The regulation of pro-inflammatory cytokines by IL-10 in blood cells and by the anti-psoriatic drug dimethylfumarate (DMF) in human keratinocytes. Special focus on DMF´s inhibitory effects on the MIF and EGF induced activations of MAPK ERK1/2 and p38 MAPK signaling pathways, the activation of RSK1/2 and MSK1/2 kinases and downstream transcription factors.

Name: Uffe Nygaard

Email: Uffenygaard@clin.au.dk

Position: Post.doc

Education: MD

Research area: My main research focus is barrier dysfunction in atopic dermatitis. Through different approaches I am evaluating how intra-epidermal derived cytokines like IL-33 and HMBG1 affects and regulates transcription and translation of some of our pivotal structural skin barrier proteins like filaggrin, involucrin and loricrin.
