Immunological Biotechnology


Immunological biotechnology enables the development of strategies for dissecting and manipulating molecular processes in health and disease and is a crucial approach for establishment and optimisation of tools for therapeutic intervention as well as diagnostics.

Central for our research is the molecular access to the disease and a  mechanism-driven development of biologicals at the interface of immunology, protein biochemistry, biotechnology, and chemistry. Within this concept the specific needs for patient tailored, precision medical treatment are addressed.

Specific research interests and projects primarily focus on molecular immunology in research, diagnostics and therapy:

Immune repertoires and combinatorial technologies

Immunoglobulins: isotypes, functions, targeting

Molecular allergology

Molecular recognition in health and disease

Antibody technologies for diagnostics and intervention
