Consolidated Researcher Details:
Why this profession?
After finishing my study of human biology in Marburg I obtained my doctoral degree by investigating the mechanisms of signal transduction during angiogenesis. Later I moved to Lübeck where I focused on skin autoimmunity and chronic inflammatory diseases in the working group of Ralf Ludwig. Here my aim is to understand the pathogenesis of these complex diseases and to improve diagnostic and therapeutic opportunities for patients. By the investigation of dietary impact on inflammation I hope to unravel new aspects of these serious diseases.
Why RTG Genes, Environment and Inflammation?
The RTG provides an excellent environment for attracting researchers to this interdisciplinary research focus. By combining the different expertise of the scientists, I expect to receive great input from the knowledge and techniques of other scientists and to contribute to the analysis of dietary impact on inflammations that can affect or daily life style.
