Translational Immunology


The Raeber Lab is part of the Department of Immunoloy at the University of Zurich and University Hospital Zurich. We share state-of-the-art research laboratories and closely collaborate with the Boyman Lab.


Tissue-resident regulatory T cells

Regulatory T cells are crucial for maintaining peripheral tolerance; however, their diverse functional properties in human tissues remain incompletely understood. Characterizing these tissue-resident regulatory T cells in both healthy and autoimmune contexts will provide novel mechanistic insights.

Systemic lupus erythematosus

Systemic lupus erythematosus is an autoimmune disease that affects various organ systems. A better understanding of its underlying pathomechanism will facilitate disease stratification according to inflammatory signatures and the development of novel treatment approaches.

Interleukin-2 for the treatment of autoimmune diseases

Due to its stimulatory effects on regulatory T cells, interleukin-2 (IL-2) has the potential to treat autoimmune diseases. In an investigator-initiated clinical trial, we tested IL-2 in patients with systemic lupus erythematosus, revealing different IL-2-driven regulatory T cell programs.
