Responsibilities

  • Lead projects that advance our understanding of the cellular and molecular mechanisms of T cell biology in inflammation and autoimmunity, with a main emphasis on tissue specific function of regulatory T cells for reestablishing immune homeostasis.
  • Mechanisms of restoration of tissue homeostasis in T cell mediated autoimmunity.
  • Identification of key molecular events of regulatory T cells that control autoinflammation and tissue damage using mouse model of autoimmune disease.
  • The scientific insights obtained from this project are expected to be published in high impact journals and furthermore provide the basis for therapeutic opportunities for autoimmune disorders such as Multiple Sclerosis.
