Lab Members

We are an international group with laboratories based at the University of Cologne and at University College London.

Research in the Walczak Laboratory is focused on the study of the functional interplay between cell death, ubiquitin and inflammation in cancer, (auto-)immunity and infectious diseases. The group is particularly interested in unravelling the mechanisms of how this functional interplay, when triggered by different death receptor-ligand systems, affects the (patho-)physiology in cancer, (auto-)immunity and the body’s response to infection. By gaining a better understanding of this functional interplay, the Walczak lab aims to devise novel therapies for these diseases.
