Research Focus

Immunology & Infectious Diseases

Area of Research

The aim of our research is the optimal care of patients with mast cell-associated diseases such as mastocytosis, urticaria and atopic dermatitis. Mast cells are important effector cells in allergies and regulate immunological processes in inflammatory diseases, autoimmune diseases and tumors. The multiplication of mast cells is found in mastocytosis, urticaria and atopic dermatitis. We investigate the pathogenesis and develop new diagnostic and therapeutic options for these diseases.
