Welcome to the Witzenrath Lab

Our research group is part of the Department of Infectious Diseases and Respiratory Medicine at Charité – Universitätsmedizin Berlin. The team consists of highly experienced physicians, veterinarians, biologists, Ph.D. students and technicians.

We aim to develop new therapeutic perspectives in lung diseases. Close interaction between basic scientists and physicians is an important characteristic of our work. Collaborations with numerous partners from academic faculties and industry around the globe are established.

Besides diverse in vitro techniques and ex vivo models (e.g. isolated perfused and ventilated mouse lungs), different in vivo models of lung infection and sepsis, a ´mouse-ICU´, models of allergen-driven lung inflammation and of pulmonary arterial hypertension are employed for experimental research.

We appreciate your interest in collaborating with us or joining us.
