Research Topics

Systems biology of immune cellls

Analysis of the cellular transcriptome, proteome and metabolome of immune cells in health and disease with a focus on the effects of environmental contaminants.

Microbiom Biology

The degradation efficiency of bacteria in different environmental compartments depends on the complex interactions in the microbial communities. In addition, processes mediated by the endogenous microbiome play an important role in metabolic diseases.

Influence of environment and lifestyle on the metabolome

The analysis of the metabolome reflects a snap-shot picture of the current state of metabolism. Changes in the metabolism, which can be responsible for the development of diseases, are recorded using metabolomics. Our aim is to unravel the response of the metabolome to external factors.

Methods development

Development of new proteomic and metabolomic technics
