Research Topics

Our group focuses on immunologic aspects of chronic infectious diseases. Mycobacterial infections (i.e. tuberculosis, buruli ulcer disease, atypical mycobacterial infections) as well as co-infections are in the center of our scientific interest. Especially T-cell dependent immunity with an emphasis on i) cytokine signaltransduction and regulation, ii) T-cell polarisation, iii) antimycobacterial Effektormechanisms is investigated.

In close cooperation with the group of PD Dr. Thomas Meissner we aim to decypher T-cell dependent mechanisms underlying development of autoimmunity in children with type-1 diabetes.
