Background and activities
Main Research Activity I head the research group CAIR, a collaboration of clinicians and researchers at the Department of Medical Microbiology, and the Department of Pediatrics, St. Olavs University Hospital, and Department of Laboratory Medicine, Children's and Women's Health, NTNU. We study childrens respiratory infections. In focus are clinical, epidemiological and virological studies of human metapneumovirus and human bocavirus, as well as the interplay with other and more well-known viruses. Studies are performed among hospitalised children and children outside the hospital. Studies on innate immunity with intracellular and molecular aspects of human metapneumovirus infection has also been initiated.
