Pharmaceutical Immunology

Our group performs research at the crossroads of immunology and vascular biology. A major focus of our research lies on investigating inflammation-induced changes of lymphatic vessels and their impact on leukocyte migration. Furthermore, we are investigating how chronic inflammation affects lymphatic vessel function and the induction of adaptive immunity in draining lymph nodes. An important goal of our research is to identify and validate new molecules, which could serve as therapeutic targets to modulate immune responses.
