Prof. Wilhelm has longterm experience in the research of a unique group of immune cells termed innate lymphoid cells (ILC). His scientific focus is to understand how these cells protect the barrier sites of our body such as the lung, skin and gut and to understand the maintenance of ILC mediated barrier immunity in the context of malnutrition. The overall aim of this research is to understand the link between westernization and the growing health problem of chronic inflammatory conditions such as inflammatory bowl disease (IBD) and asthma.
