Research Interests: Research at the Institute of Immunology focusses on autoimmunity, immunoregulation, and infection immunology. Our interest is both basic research as well as clinically orientated immunology. In the research focus autoimmunity, we examine the induction, chronification and modulation of pathological immune responses in models of arthritis (e.g. Arthritis Res Ther. 2010;12(6):R203.Ann Rheum Dis. 2010.Aug;69(8):1511-8.Nat Immunol 2002;3:411) and autoimmune encephalitis (e.g. Eur J Immunol. 2011 Mar;41(3):833-44.Nat Immunol 2007;8:958-66J. Immunol. 2005;175: 959-66). With regard to immunoregulation we focus on the induction, function and stability of Th17 cells (e.g. J Exp Med. 2009 Dec 21;206(13):3047-59; Eur J Immunol. 2008;38:2654-64; Nat Immunol 2007;8:958-66; J. Immunol. 2000;165:6107-6115) and the receptor for IL-33 (IL-33R e.g. Blood. 2010 May 13;115(19):3899-906J Immunol. 2009;183:874-81J Immunol. 2004;173:7037-45Proc. Natl. Acad. Sci. USA 1998;95:6930-5 ).
