Stefan H.E. Kaufmann is distinguished for his outstanding contributions to the immune response against intracellular bacterial pathogens. He is founding director of the Max-Planck-Institute for Infection Biology where he directs the Department of Immunology since 1993. His recent work focuses on tuberculosis with an emphasis on the mechanisms of host defence, the survival strategies of the pathogen, the development of a novel vaccine and the identification of biomarkers for disease and protection.
Aside from his research activities, Kaufmann is strongly engaged in improving public understanding of immunology and infectious diseases.
