Liv Eidsmo, MD, PhD, LEO Foundation Skin Immunology Research Center, Copenhagen, Denmark: Maintenance and renewal of skin resident T cells in inflammatory skin diseases

Host: Riitta Lahesmaa ( )

Immunology seminar series is jointly organised by the Finnish Society for Immunology, InFLAMES Flagship and Turku Bioscience. For further information contact Anne Lahdenperä ( or Riitta Lahesmaa (, University of Turku.


Liv Eidsmo is a board certified dermatologist, a Professor of Translational Skin Immunology and the Executive Director of the LEO Foundation Skin Immunology Research Center at the University of Copenhagen. Eidsmo graduated from Karolinska Institutet, Sweden. Following a postdoc in Frank Carbone’s laboratory at Melbourne University in Australia, her first laboratory was established at the Center for Molecular Medicine (CMM) at Karolinska Institutet in parallel to clinical training in dermatology at Karolinska University Hospital. The current laboratory at University of Copenhagen focuses on how T cells residing in the skin drive local recurrence of diseases such as psoriasis and vitiligo.
