I am broadly interested in understanding disease mechanisms and improving means to diagnose and treat autoimmune disorders.

Autoimmune diseases are highly heterogenous from a clinical perspective but they share the property of developing from immune responses that target self-proteins. Accordingly, comprehensive analyses of autoimmune reactivity can provide crucial means to understand disease mechanisms and improve diagnostics. To this end we have adopted and developed a set of complementary technologies for explorative and targeted autoantibody analyses.

I also have a particular interest in the prominent differences in risks of developing autoimmune diseases between men and women, which we address in our project SEXimmune.
