Research Interest

As a Clinician Scientist of the Cluster of Excellence “Precision Medicine in Chronic Inflammation”, I set out to unify my expertise in basic science with my background as a physician in training (internal medicine). My main scientific interests are

  • Autophagy processes as potential immune mechanisms in the intestinal epithelium, utilizing stem cell-based disease models, e.g. tissue- and iPSC-derived intestinal organoid culturing systems
  • Mechanisms of therapy response and molecular therapy guidance in IBD
  • Molecular characterization of rare/monogenic immune disorders (e.g. veoIBD)
    The overall aim of my work is to understand the disease mechanisms in the intestinal epithelium in IBD to deliver novel therapy strategies (from bed to bench and back).
