Since 2010 she holds a position both at the Universitätsmedizin Charité in Berlin and at the Justus-Liebig University in Giessen (Germany) and moved from stress-associated neuro-immune interactions in atopic dermatitis to their role in skin in general and in non-communicable diseases such as depression or diabetes. Her work is supported by Grants from the state of Hesse, the DFG and the BMBF.
