Research Summary

The aims of Professor Walczak’s research are to develop new therapies for cancer on the basis of the concept of directly and specifically inducing programmed cell death in cancer cells and new therapeutic options for patients suffering from auto-immunity based on the concept that different forms of cell death differentially stimulate the immune system.
