Research interests

  • Protein-chemistry and molecular biology of respiratory and food allergens: what makes an allergen an allergen?
  • Innovative approaches for in vitro and in vivo diagnosis of IgE-mediated allergy: from allergen extracts to molecular diagnostics.
  • Innovative biopharmaceutical approaches for allergen-specific immunotherapy: recombinant technology, novel adjuvants and administration routes.
  • Immuno-epidemiology of respiratory and food allergies: the role of allergen exposure, environment, diet, infections and lifestyle in the development of allergy.
  • Mouse models of allergy and asthma: how are sensitization and disease expression regulated?
