Focused on

Function of the cutaneous immune system in health and disease

Main fields of research

Our research activities are mainly focused on the function of the cutaneous immune system in health and disease. Thereby we have a special interest in the pathophysiology of severe cutaneous drug reactions. In that context we aim to identify the phenotype and function of resident immune cells of the skin in cutaneous drug reactions. Furthermore, we are interested in analyses of the impact of cellular stress (ROS) on tumor stroma and tumor formation as part of an ongoing collaboration with Prof. Dotto (Lausanne) and Dr Schatton (Boston).
