Christian Kanstrup Holm


Christian Kanstrup is currently an associate professor in virology and immunology. He is a molecular biologist by training and holds a Ph.D. in medicine from Aarhus University (Denmark). The main focus of his research has been to improve our understanding of immune responses to virus infections. Such improved understanding could lead to the discovery of therapies and/or technologies that act broadly to fight the spread of pandemic viruses. His most recent work has focused on SARS-CoV-2 and how molecules known from the treatment of sclerosis can both inhibit viral replication and limit inflammatory response to the virus.
