Dr. Berglund’s research interests are in the use of mesenchymal stem cells for the treatment of inflammatory and immune-mediated diseases. I am currently focused on reducing the immunogenicity of donor mesenchymal stem cells to develop more efficient and efficacious regenerative therapies. I am also interested in the regulation of MHC expression by TGF-β and how this mechanism protects tissues from damage by immune responses. Additional interests include developing the horse as a large animal translational model for immunology research.
