The current hub of my research is to understand plant immunity to fungal and fungal-like pathogens. Our laboratory is particularly focused on reactive nitrogen species including their role in programmed cell death, distal signaling and the acquisition of cross-resistance to biotic stresses. We also try to answer the question whether and to what extent nitric oxide may constitute an element in the offensive strategy of the pathogen.
