Genetic of autoimmune diseases

Lecturer: Prof. Dr. Saleh Ibrahim

In this internship we will focus on genetic of autoimmune and chronic inflammatory skin diseases, such as pemphigoid, pemphigus, lupus and psoriasis aiming at identifying risk genes for these diseases and perform gene-environment interaction studies (e.g. microbiota, nutrition, smoking etc.).

Practical skills:

  • Advanced molecular biology techniques
  • SNP genotyping
  • NGS sequencing
  • Bioinformatic
  • Microbiota analysis


  • understanding the immungenetic of autoimmune and chronic inflammatory skin diseases
  • understanding of bioinformatic tools  identifying risk genes and gene-environmental interactions
  • working with human material

Allocation of credit and grading by:

  • Oral presentation and written report
