Professor by special appointment Immune Technology
Research within my group consists of a mixture of biotechnology and immunology and is focused on the development of novel technologies with which T cell-based immune responses can be measured and also manipulated. The resulting technologies are subsequently used by us to address fundamental issues regarding immune recognition, such as the issue which types of pathogen-derived proteins are recognized most efficiently by T lymphocytes. In a parallel line of research, the technologies that we develop are utilized for the design of novel strategies for immunotherapy. An important goal in this line of research is the development and clinical testing of novel forms of adoptive immunotherapy, such as T cell receptor gene therapy.
