Professorship for Pharmaceutical Biology

Professor Dr. Alexandra K. Kiemer


Prof. Kiemer's research group focuses on the characterization of cellular signal transduction pathways with emphasis on the pathogenesis of inflammatory diseases. Cellular and molecular biological methods as well as in vivo models in animals and humans are used, which - like the use of biogenic substances - serve to identify therapeutic targets.

The following research areas are of particular interest:

  • Endothelial cell activation, arteriosclerosis
  • macrophage activation, toll-like receptors
  • Mechanisms in the development of hepatocellular carcinoma
  • Homepage of the working group
