Iris GRATZ, (University of Salzburg – Austria): « In vivo manipulation of T cell fate in skin immunity »

The principal goal of Iris Gratz’ research is to investigate thmechanisms of immune regulation in the skin. During her first Postdoc at the University Hospital Salzburg, Austria, she developed approaches to induce antigen-specific immune tolerance to skin antigens. During her second Postdoc with Professor Abul Abbas at the University of California, San Francisco, she then established novel mouse models to study T cell mediated immune responses and regulatory processes in the skin. She
started her independent research group at the University of Salzburg, Austria, in 2014 and since then the team has developed unique humanized mouse models to study and manipulate T cells within human skin. Recently, the group has started to study the role of specialized T cells in skin tissue-repair using these humanized mice. The overall goal in this work is to understand basic mechanisms of skin immune regulation and inflammation and to lay the groundwork for novel therapeutic strategies to treat chronic and debilitating inflammatory skin conditions.
