Broegelmann lecture

Dear all,

This year’s Broegelmann lecture will be held the 30th May. It is given by Professor Marie Wahren Herlenius, Professor at KI and Professor II at UiB. She has a longstanding interest in Sjögren’s syndrome and has used Sjögren’s patient material to dissect underlying molecular mechanisms of sexual dimorphism in autoimmune diseases. We can look forward to an interesting seminar!

Best regards,

Helena
