Mission

Structural analysis of highly purified, biologically relevant, bacterial and environmental compounds aiming in understanding their role in the course of allergic inflammation: (I) pathomechanisms of Stenotrophomonas maltophilia; (II) Structural and functional analyses of antibodies and lectin binding to microbial surface glycans; (III) identification of carbohydrate epitopes to be used for diagnostic and therapeutic purposes and to reveal binding mechanisms.
