Type-2 immunity in health and disease: Our major research interests focus on the biologic mechanisms underlying both beneficial as well as pathogenic type 2 immune responses. On the one hand we are trying to get a better understanding on how allergies evolve and to develop alternative treatment approaches directly interfering with the allergic cascade. On the other hand we are investigating the development of age-related disorders and how they are linked to alterations in type 2 immune responses. In our studies we integrate molecular, cellular and systemic approaches to identify important biological mechanisms involved in the pathophysiology of a disease.
