Our goal is to understand the pathophysiological processes in the effector phase of asthma and COPD and thereby to identify new therapeutic targets for the treatment of these diseases. In particular, we investigate the regulatory mechanisms underlying the interaction of receptor-activating autoantibodies, mast cells and neutrophils in the pathogenesis of asthma.
