Research Interests

We are interested in infectious disease, inflammation and the pathophysiology of different diseases. A particular focus rests on the interface of immunology and metabolism (immunometabolism) and how cells and organs communicate with each other during viral infections. We are also interested in innovative pathogen surveillance methods and closely work with infection epidemiologists and public health stakeholders.
