Celeste Porsbjerg is a Respiratory Specialist and Clinical Research Associate Professor at Bispebjerg Hospital and the Institute of Clinical Medicine at the University of Copenhagen.
Celeste Porsbjerg co-chairs the Respiratory Research Unit at Bispebjerg Hospital. Furthermore, Celeste Porsbjerg is in charge of the Severe Asthma Clinic at Bispebjerg Hospital.
Her research interests are centred around disease mechanisms and phenotyping of asthma and COPD, with a focus on airway pathophysiology and inflammation. Hence, her Ph.D. thesis from 2006 described the usefulness of bronchial provocation testing with mannitol for assessing inflammation driven airway hyperresponsiveness. During her post doc with Professor Peter Gibsons group in Australia in 2010, she described relationships between airway pathophysiology and subtypes of airway inflammation in older adults with asthma.
Current research projects focus on translational aspects of obstructive airways disease: “Real life” epidemiology, novel disease mechanisms and clinical biomarkers for personalised treatment strategies, with the aim to improve outcomes in severe asthma and COPD.
