Project outline:

The project investigates the molecular causes of autoimmune inflammatory diseases, especially ankylosing spondylitis (Morbus Bechterew), which are statistically associated with the occurrence of certain alleles of the human leukocyte antigen (HLA) class I proteins. We will investigate the molecular properties of these proteins and the effects that they cause in the cells that produce them. Methods include mammalian cell culture, fluorescence microscopy, flow cytometry, immunoprecipitation, but also isolation, purification, and analysis of proteins.
