Biological Barriers in Health and Disease
Welcome to the website of the group of Dr. Neuhaus. We are working on the function of biological barriers in health and disease. The main focus is set on the blood-brain barrier, the lung alveolar epithelium and the kidney proximal tubulus.
In several diseases such as stroke, traumatic brain injury or sepsis the stabilization of biological barriers can contribute to a less adverse outcome and represent a promising therapeutic target.
