Line is a Danish postdoctoral researcher with the Dept. of Psychology and Neuroscience, Duke University, and Dept. of Clinical Research, Copenhagen University Hospital Hvidovre, Denmark, supported by an international postdoctoral fellowship from the Lundbeck Foundation. 

With an M.Sc. in Molecular Biomedicine and a Ph.D. in Immunology and Infectious Diseases, both from University of Copenhagen, Denmark, Line is an immunologist and epidemiologist by training. Her research integrates theory and methods from immunology, clinical research, and population-based studies to identify the risk factors, measures, and outcomes of systemic chronic inflammation with emphasis on its role in biological aging and disease development. Her work is centered on biomarkers of inflammation and biological aging, with focus on the emerging systemic chronic inflammation marker “suPAR”. This work includes clinical prognostication using suPAR, as well as research into early life risk factors for systemic chronic inflammation and other physical or mental health outcomes later in life.
