PI: Eva Böhm
Focus: Our research unit is interested in dysregulated intracellular signaling pathways associated with chronic inflammatory processes with a main focus on eosinophilic disorders such as bronchial asthma and eosinophilic esophagitis.
Network: In vitro and in vivo studies on mechanisms of eosinophilic inflammation are performed by the research team at the Division of Pharmacology. Mutual collaborations exist with the research groups of Akos Heinemann (biology of lipid mediators), Rudolf Schicho (histology and fluorescence microscopy) and Gunther Marsche (lipid metabolism). Patient samples are provided in scientific collaboration by the Clinical Departments of Pulmonology and Gastroenterology. Close cooperation also exists with the Ludwig Boltzmann Institute for Pulmonary Vascular Research and international partners.
