Research Interests:

Our long-term research interest is to characterize molecular mechanisms that regulate the development and function of T lymphocytes. With our studies we aim to provide important and medical relevant insight into the regulation of T cell-mediated immunity. In ongoing studies we address the following research topics:

  • The role of histone deacetylases in the regulation of T cell-mediated immunity
  • Transcriptional control of T cell development
  • Regulation of peripheral T cell function and maintenance of T cell lineage identity and integrity

The experimental strategies to address our research interests include multi-color flow-cytometry, a variety of immunological tools, biochemical and molecular approaches, retroviral-mediated gene transduction into hematopoietic stem cells, next generation sequencing and mouse molecular genetics tools.
