Research Goals

Our goal is to develop new knowledge regarding the roles of the immune system in health and disease. We further aim to translate this knowledge into novel immunotherapies.

Our laboratory is interested in “Type 2 immunity” in health and disease. Type 2 immunity occurs during allergic diseases or infection with helminth parasites. Nonetheless, emerging data highlight new roles for Type 2 immune responses in metabolism, tissue regeneration and cancer.

We aim to define the roles of type 2 immune responses in chronic inflammation and the tumor microenvironment and to translate these findings into novel immunotherapies.
