Teaching

Teaching responsibilities include lecturing and contact teaching on the fields of (molecular) cell biology and histology for medical, biomedical and dentistry students

Research

In my research, the function of myeloid cells and mesenchymal cells in the process of calvarial implant integration (ADMIO-consortium). Further, we study also the role of sex steroid receptors on regulation of myeloid cells. This includes the role of myeloid cells in chronic inflammations (e.g. chronic colitis) as well as in tumors.
