To address the scientific questions we are concerned with we mainly employ cellular immunological techniques as well as cell culture and animal models of human diseases:

-       lymphocyte separation using magnetic or flow cytometric sorting

-       cell culture of primary lymphocytes isolated from humans, mice or rats

-       multi-color flow cytometry

-       cytotoxicity tests

-       histology and immunohistochemistry

-       generation of monoclonal antibodies with the hybridoma method

-       disease models: acute Graft versus Host Disease (aGvHD), Multiple Sclerosis, Asthma, Measles virus infection of the brain (in collaboration with Prof. Jürgen Schneider-Schaulies)
