Personal profile

Scientific Focus

Psychoneuroimmunology is concerned with the reciprocal relationship between the brain and the immune system. For over 20 years, I have been investigating how sleep and the circadian system regulate the innate and adaptive immune system and the extent to which messenger substances of the immune system influence brain functions in healthy test subjects.

Recent work has focused on psychoneuroimmunological aspects in patients with autoimmune diseases, e.g. the mechanisms by which chronic inflammatory processes and disorders of the adaptive immune system can lead to sleep changes, fatigue and autonomic dysregulation.
