Ralf Ludwig obtained his medical degree at the Johann Wolfgang Goethe University (Frankfurt/Main, Germany). He received his training as a dermatologist at the Department of Dermatology at the same institution. In 2007 he moved to the Department of Dermatology at the University of Lübeck, where he became member of the board of directors at the Lübeck Institute for Experimental Dermatology in 2014.

His main research interests are the modulation of chronic cutaneous inflammation. In order to unravel the pathogenies of these complex diseases he mainly employs in vitro model systems and pre-clinical animal models. Translation into patient care is achieved by close cooperation with the Department of Dermatology and the Comprehensive Center of Inflammation Medicine at Lübeck. 

He currently investigates pathogenesis of autoimmune skin blistering diseases in order to improve the so-far unsatisfactory treatment of patients (short CV).
