The overall aim of my PhD thesis is to increase the understanding of extraintestinal manifestations, in particular spondyloarthritis, in patients with inflammatory bowel disease. My supervisors are gastroenterologist Pontus Karling, rheumathologist Helena Forsblad dÉlia, and radiologist Sara Strandberg.
