Research area:

Metabolites of our food, in addition to their function as energy carriers, also have a role as direct modulators of immune functions. Immune responses require changes in our metabolism, conversely immune responses also dictate changes in our metabolism. The goal of our research group is to investigate the interplay of immunology, metabolism, and nutrition to contribute to the prevention and resolution of inflammation in autoimmune diseases.
