Dirk Baumjohann studied Molecular Medicine in Erlangen, Germany, with his diploma thesis on non-invasive in vivo imaging of dendritic cell migration. He then earned his PhD degree in Cell Biology/Immunology with Federica Sallusto at the Institute for Research in Biomedicine in Bellinzona, Switzerland, with work on T cell-B cell interactions and a focus on T follicular helper (Tfh) cells. Next, he joined K. Mark Ansel’s lab at UCSF in San Francisco for his postdoctoral work on cellular and molecular regulation of T helper cell differentiation, in particular the role of miRNAs and transcription factors. Since 2014, he is an independent Emmy Nother Research Group Leader at the LMU in Munich (funded by the German Research Foundation), where he currently investigates the molecular basis of T helper cell diversity in various disease models and patient-derived samples.
