The innate immune response serves as the first line of immune defense against invading pathogens and tumors. The focus of our research is to dissect activation modules of innate immune cells, in particular Natural Killer cells and Innate Lymphoid Cells and the influence of the microenvironment on their function in tissues during homeostasis and disease. Our experimental systems include sophisticated conditional mouse models, Xenograft mouse models and primary human cells.
