On-going collaborative projects

Below you can find examples of on-going collaborations between SLU and UU researchers.

Mast cells and their proteases: future targets for asthma therapy and diagnosis
The project is funded by a grant from the Knut and Alice Wallenberg Foundation.
Involved researchers: Gunnar Pejler, (PI, UU and SLU), Mo Alimohammadi, Kjell Alving, Jenny Hallgren, Lars Hellman, Christer Janson, Andrei Malinovschi (UU), Sara Wernersson (SLU)

Dog genetics
The dog genetics group is a unique collaboration between a large number of researchers at UU and SLU. Projects include studies on the genetics behind many dog diseases and also for other characteristics such as behavior. The dog as a model for human diseases is an important aspect of the research.
