On November 19 Julia Esser-von Bieren was awarded the Henning Løwenstein Research Award 2021. This biennial award is given to a young researcher, who has shown excellence in the field of allergy research. The award was presented and handed out by Henning Løwenstein and Stephen Durham, who have made seminal contributions to the development of allergen specific immunotherapy (AIT), at ALK headquarters in Hørsholm, Denmark. Julia Esser-von Bieren's research is focussed on the mechanisms that drive and regulate type 2 inflammation, e.g. in asthma. Recently, the team could identify mechanisms that drive the inflammatory reprogramming of macrophages in allergic asthma and NSAID-exacerbated respiratory disease. In addition, the group could characterize and purify an anti-inflammatory helminth protein that regulates lipid mediator pathways and thus allergic airway inflammation: https://www.zaum-online.de/research/lab-esser-von-bieren/publications.html
