Our lab focuses on cell-cell interactions, cellular localization and migration into and within tissues. To address such questions we combine classical immunological assays with cutting edge microscopy including 2-photon imaging of live animals, multicolor staining and confocal analysis of tissue section and whole mount preparations to study cellular immune responses in the context of infections. Central questions currently addressed in our lab include:

  1. Function and development cytotoxic CD8+ T cells
  2. Migration and dynamics of Dendritic Cells within tissues
  3. Immune defense against viral and bacterial infections
  4. Interface between innate and adaptive immune system
  5. Mechanisms of the neuro-immune axis

We are a young dynamic team and based on our technical expertise and broad research interest and are involved in various collaborations with local research teams.
