Bernd Kaspers

He has more than 25 years of research experience in avian immunology which is documented by more than 90 peer-reviewed publications. He is co-editor of “Avian Immunology” published in a 2nd edition in 2014. He is actively involved in the Avian Immunology Research Group (AIRG) and has hosted the 2004 AIRG symposium in Munich and will host the AIRG 2016 in Bavaria.

His work involves research on both the innate and adaptive arms of the avian immune system with a particular focus on host-pathogen interaction, immune system maturation and mucosal immunity. Through this he has developed a broad range of tools for avian immunology research such as CD-markers, recombinant cytokines, bio-assays and technologies for functional in vivo studies which have been made available to the international avian research community.

Prof Kaspers received funding from the European Union, the German Research Foundation (DFG) and the German Ministry for Education and Research. He also coordinated a DFG funded Graduate School at the Faculty of Veterinary Medicine in Munich.
