Om mig

Per-Erik Engström



Tandläkarexamen 1978 och specialist i tandlossningssjukdomar 1984.

Disputerade på Karolinska Institutet 1993 med avhandlingen ”Mucosal and systemic antibody networks with special emphasis on IgA subclasses”.

Docentur i odontologisk immunologi 2003.

Forskningen är inriktad på tre olika kroniska sjukdomar.  Parodontit hos individer med diabetes mellitus eller reumatoid artrit, med parodontala och immunologiska aspekter.

Jag handleder för närvarande två doktorander och är lärare på tandläkarutbildningen med momentansvar för 4:e och 5:e termin,  icke kirurgisk och kirurgisk behandling av tandlossningssjukdomar.
