Adjunct Professor, Pulmonary Medicine/Allergy, Unit of Heart and Lung Diseases, Department of Medicine, Karolinska Institute
Dr. Dahlén is a senior physician who has conducted research in pulmonary medicine/allergy since the 1980s.
She heads a human research programme at Karolinska that aims to improve phenotyping of asthma and other mast cell-mediated disorders, in order to develop diagnostic biomarkers and define new treatment strategies for these different phenotypes. The project uses bronchial provocations, and is most concerned with three clinical problems: aspirin/NSAID-intolerant asthma, trigger-factor evoked bronchoconstriction, and severe asthma.
Her other current projects research focus on severe asthma, exercise-induced asthma and asthma patients who become ill by painkillers.
