Research interests

The group studies immunological processes in the tumor microenvironment and in autoimmunity using high field MRI at 9.4 T in glioma and EAE models. We are employing correlative immunological and optical methods (2 Photon, confocal and ultramicroscopy) to validate MR imaging findings.
