The Department of Infection Biology

The Department of Infection Biology is an independent department at the Institute of Microbiology, Immunology and Hygiene at the Universitätsklinikum Erlangen. The department is headed by Prof. Dr. David Vöhringer who was appointed a W2 professorship at the Friedrich-Alexander-University Erlangen-Nürnberg in October 2010.

The main focus of our research activities is to characterize fundamental mechanisms of the immune system that regulate allergic reactions and protective immunity against pathogens.
