What we do

In the Molecular Allergology group we are aiming to unravel the molecular basis of allergic diseases, antigen presentation, immunotherapies, immunotolerance and tolerance breakage with a combination of functional genomics techniques, including proteomics, peptidomics and immunopeptidomics. The acquired large-scale molecular data are analysed with the aim to identify molecular markers with which risk factors, different disease phenotypes, their underlying pathogenic mechanisms, and different patient response groups can be distinguished.
