Per-Johan Jakobsson, professor of translational inflammatory research, wants to gain a better understanding of chronic inflammatory diseases such as rheumatism with the aid of proteomics, the large-scale analysis of proteins. His research on prostaglandins may lead to more efficacious drugs for pain and fever in the long term.
Per-Johan Jakobsson is researching to improve the situation for patients with chronic inflammatory diseases. One of his areas of research is prostaglandins, a group of substances that are similar to hormones. If we can gain a better understanding of how the body forms these substances, it will be possible to develop better anti-inflammatory drugs.
