Line is a Danish researcher with the Dept. of Psychology and Neuroscience, Duke University, and the Dept. of Clinical Research, Copenhagen University Hospital Hvidovre, Denmark. Line completed postdoctoral training with the Moffitt-Caspi Lab at Duke University, 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. Line has brought together the field of life-course epidemiology with a strong background in laboratory methods and biomedicine to address fundamental questions about health and illness from childhood to old age. 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, immunosenescence (aging of the immune system), and accelerated biological aging.
