My research activities focus on immunology and mechanotransduction in the periodontium, which is also consolidated by my membership in the cluster of excellence immunosensation2.The focus is on the cellular mechanisms of the innate and adaptive immune system in the periodontium as well as stress protectionagainst immunologically mediated pathologies in the context of cellular mechanotransduction. Investigations of the immunological mechanisms that control peridontal regeneration versus autodestruction during orthodontic tooth movement play a central role. One of the main objectives is to transfer the molecular understanding of these processes in the periodontium to the development of clinical strategies for the prevention of immune-mediated pathologies.
