... studied biochemistry and molecular biology at the University of Hamburg. During his time as a diploma and PhD student at the Bernhard-Nocht-Institute for Tropical Medicine (Hamburg), he researched signal transduction in T-cells. Subsequently, he joined the research group Experimental Rheumatology at the Charité University Medicine Berlin. In 2006, he became a Junior Professor for Immune Regulation with a focus on rheumatology and clinical immunology. His successful research on regulatory T-cells was rewarded with the Avrion Mitchison-Award for Rheumatism Research (2002), the Wolfgang Schulze Award for Rheumatism Research (2007) and the Langener Science Award (2007). Jochen Hühn has remained faithful to the investigation of regulatory T-cells and currently heads the Department of Experimental Immunology at the Helmholtz Centre for Infection Research in Braunschweig and holds a professorship at the Hannover Medical School (MHH) since August 2008. He is organizer of the annual German Meeting on Immune Regulation and since 2014, he is elected Advisory Board member of the German Society of Immunology. Presently, he is coordinating the EU-funded Innovative Training Network “ENLIGHT-TEN” – European Network Linking Informatics and Genomics of Helper T-cells.
