We are interested in pathogenic mechanisms involved in eosinophilic diseases. Projects range between basic science questions and investigator-driven drug studies. Currently, besides molecular mechanisms of eosinophilia, we are particularly interested in the role of autophagy for eosinophil functions as well as in mechanisms of eosinophil-mediated tissue damage.
