Dynamics of Pulmonary Inflammation

  • Nanoparticle exposure induced lung injury and the role of alveolar macrophages.

  • Nanoparticles and persistent virus infection – a dangerous liaison for the development of chronic lung disease? (Cooperation with Heiko Adler, LRR)
  • Impact of maternal high fat diet on macrophage priming and the resolution of pulmonary inflammation in offspring (Cooperation with Jan Rozman, German Mouse Clinic)
  • Therapeutic nanoparticles for pulmonary application. Development of an in vitro screening system for pulmonary cell-specific drug targeting.
  • Respiratory toxicity of engineered nanoparticles (SmartNanoTox - Smart Tools for Gauging Nano Hazards, EU, Horizon 2020, No.686098, 03/2016-03/2020 - Cooperation with Dr. Otmar Schmid, iLBD)
