Synopsis

Our research group "Inflammatory Lung Diseases in Childhood" is interested in immunological mechanisms that influence inflammatory lung diseases in childhood. Studies of mouse models and patient material enable us to characterize the immunological processes that influence these highly prevalent and/or deleterious diseases, such as bronchial asthma or cystic fibrosis, but also allergic diseases of the skin and the gastrointestinal tract with the aim to identify new approaches for anti-inflammatory therapies.
