Prof Georg Hollander
Prof. Georg A Holländer was trained in both Paediatrics and Experimental Immunology in Switzerland and the U.S. He held academic positions at Harvard Medical School, Boston, U.S. and the University of Basel, Switzerland, before he joined the University of Oxford, UK (2010). The laboratory of Developmental Immunology is part of The Weatherall Institute of Molecular Medicine (WIMM) and The Department of Paediatrics. Due to his academic double appointment, Prof. Holländer also directs a “sister laboratory” at the Centre for Biomedicine at the University of Basel. Both laboratories focus on the development and function of the thymus in health and disease and have over the years created different genetic mouse models to study thymus organogenesis and function and to create relevant models of human diseases related to aberrant thymus function.
