Our research team at the Department of Biomedicine in Basel is interested in the understanding of innate immune dysfunction in particular monocyte/macrophage biology in patients with cirrhosis of the liver. The future aim is to understand the underlying pathogenesis and to develop immunotherapeutic strategies.

Using biological material from patients ex vivo and in cell culture models we aim to investigate pathways involved in the differentiation and function of immune-regulatory monocytes in cirrhosis. State of the art techniques such as flow cytometry, quantitative PCR, Western Blot, immunohistochemistry and single cell RNA sequencing will be applied. National and international collaborations are established.
