I worked in my own laboratory in cooperation with several clinical institutions at the Med.Uni. in Graz, Austria

I learned about OpenWetWare from Sci Am May 2008, p.48,

My main reason for joining OWW: Cooperation offer, looking for someone willing and able to continue my scientific work. Topic: definition of infection risk in immunocompromised patients.

Research interests

My main interest concentrates on the acute inflammation, especially on the neutrophil granulocyte (polymorphonuclear leukocyte, PMN) and its physiology. Animal tests with rats. Around 1986, I started to develop/improve methods for the clinical measurement of PMN functions: migration, ROS release and actin polymerisation (F-actin) – see publication list. Since 1998 attempts to introduce an automated PMN migration test for clinical purposes, that failed.
