The Boes team

The Boes team explores mechanisms that drive immune recognition in human disease, using an interdisciplinary approach and in collaboration with clinical scientists. We do this, because we believe that many diseases can be treatable by immune response modification through specific targeting of conserved pathways. Our overarching goal is to develop new therapies or improve diagnostics for immune-related disorders. For current individual projects please click on researcher pictures.
