The aim of our research is to understand the complexity and function of dendritic cells and monocytes during health and disease. A major focus lies on the developmental processes leading to the functional specialization of dendritic cell subsets and monocytes. To analyse these highly heterogeneous compartments we use state of the art technologies such as single cell mRNA sequencing, multi-colour fish and advanced flow cytometry. Taken together we are investigating how the development of dendritic cells and monocytes shapes their functional specialization during homeostasis and disease.
