Winau Lab

Immunologists in the Winau Lab are most excited about the discovery of basic mechanisms that explain how the immune system functions. Over the years, we added to the passion for basic science a strong interest in identifying targets for possible translation to future immunotherapies. Our research program is quite diverse, ranging from classical cellular immunology using mouse models, studies in the human system and structural biology, over viral infection models and cell biology using live microscopy, to molecular biology and global epigenetic analyses. To reduce it to a common denominator, our work can be described as “antigen presentation, T cell biology, and the role of lipids in Immunology”.
