About Sarita Shrestha

Sarita is a doctoral student at the NEWBREED program within a thematic area of the biology of ageing. The programme is co-funded by the European Commission through the Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions, Co-funding of Regional, National and International Programmes (MSCA COFUND).


Sarita’s doctoral project attempts to examine the impact of age on immune-mediated manifestations of Inflammatory bowel disease. The doctoral projects will explore the aspects of the occurrence of chronic immune mediated comorbidity and extra-intestinal manifestations, in relation to genetic predisposition, shared environmental factors and inflammation, in patients with late onset IBD.


Currently, she is working on her first project -Validation of IBD diagnoses and Montreal Classification defined subgroups of the diseases in the Swedish National Patient Register.
