Alexander Eggel

The Eggel Lab is affiliated with the Department for BioMedical Research (DBMR) at the University of Bern and the Department of RIA at the University Hospital Bern in Switzerland. Their major research interests focus on the biologic mechanisms underlying both beneficial as well as pathogenic type 2 immune responses. On the one hand they are trying to get a better understanding on how allergies evolve and to develop alternative treatment approaches directly interfering with the allergic cascade. On the other hand they are investigating the development of age-related disorders and how they are linked to alterations in type 2 immune responses.
