Inflammation, Fc receptors, Complement

The research group is working on cellular mechanisms of organ-specific inflammation that contribute to autoimmune disease in mice. A special focus is on the molecular analysis of the function and clinical relevance of IgG Fc receptors and the complement system in myeloid cell activation and the identification of intracellular signaling molecules that regulate the cross-talk of these two major effector systems in autoantibody-dependent pathology.
