Personal profile

Research interests

The Herrlich laboratory's primary expertise lies in the study of regulation of cytokine release by ectodomain cleavage and of its cell biological, physiological and pathophysiological consequences. We study regulation of ectodomain cleavage in vitro using various approaches, and also its relevance in human disease, in particular kidney disease and cancer.

Clinical interests

Acute kidney failure, chronic kidney failure


My laboratory is committed to diversity, inclusion, equity, and social justice in higher education. Over my career to date I have trained and long-term mentored a large and very diverse group of trainees, stemming from different societal, cultural, religious and racial backgrounds from all over the world, including a large number of females trainees. I am also currently mentoring and teaching a very diverse group of undergraduates, graduate students, postdoctoral fellows and junior faculty. Recent trainees include for example a female PhD student from Egypt, two male postdoctoral fellows from Japan and China, a female technician from Morrocco, a female trainee from Greece, a female Master student from India, and a male Master student from Pakistan.
