 Antigen Presentation and Immune Regulation Research Group  (AIR)

Christopher Schliehe was recruited by the Erasmus MC in 2016 and is currently Assistant Professor in the Department of Immunology. After his doctoral studies at the University of Konstanz, Germany, in which he studied the principles of antigen presentation, he moved to CeMM Research Center for Molecular Medicine of the Austrian Academy of Sciences in Vienna, Austria, and investigated mechanisms of immune regulation by epigenetic modifiers as a postdoctoral fellow. His group is focusing on antigen presentation and immune regulation in the context of immunotherapies and aims to identify fundamental processes that might open novel treatment options for patients suffering from immune-related diseases in the future.
