Trine H. Mogensen obtained her medical degree from Aarhus University (AU) in 2002, a PhD degree in 2003, and a Doctor of Medical Sciences degree (DMSc) in 2009. Her current affiliations include Dept. of Biomedicine (AU) and Dept. of Infectious Diseases, Aarhus University Hospital, where she directs her research group and do clinical work with patients, respectively.
The aim of her research is to understand basic mechanisms in innate immunology relevant to infectious diseases and immunodeficiencies in humans. Through a translational approach combining whole exome sequencing of patient samples with functional studies in molecular immunology and virology, her group aims at delineating the pathogenesis, the genetics and immunology of infectious diseases, including HSV and VZV infections in the central nervous system, severe influenza, and various SARS-CoV-2 disease manifestations, such as critical COVID-19 and multisystem inflammatory syndrome in children (MIS-C).
