ALLERGY AND CLINICAL IMMUNOLOGY

The work of the Allergy and Clinical Immunology group has its focus on the common pathways leading to the activation of immune reactions and the induction of immune tolerance in various diseases, with special attention to IgE-mediated allergies. 

activities

The Allergy and Clinical Immunology group aims to identify and characterise novel insect venom allergens (in collaboration with Helmholtz Center, Munich) and to perform clinical-translational studies on anaphylaxis to various allergens (in collaboration with Odense Research Centre in Anaphylaxis/ORCA, University of Southern Denmark), but also on tolerance responses developing in patients undergoing allergen-specific immunotherapy (in collaboration with Centre Hospitalier de Luxembourg/CHL, Luxembourg). New targets for immune interventions and biomarkers for precision medicine will be developed and tested in pre-clinical models. 

State-of-the-art techniques such as proteomics, CyTOF or gene network analysis are at our disposal to perform the studies.
