Andreas Recke is a physician scientist who studied medicine at the Christian-Albrechts-University of Kiel from 1993 until 2000. From 2000-2001, he attended his internship at the department of dermatology of the Georg-August-University. During his residency from 2002 until 2005, he worked at the departments of dermatology at the Otto-von-Guericke University of Magdeburg and the University of Lübeck. Since 2005 he serves as a consultant for dermatology and venerology at the department of dermatology at the University of Lübeck. In 2006, he additionally acquired the certificate as a specialist for allergology. He received his doctoral degree in 2003 for a thesis about the shedding of CD30 by membrane-bound metalloproteases at the institute of biochemistry of the Christian-Albrechts-University of Kiel.
His research interest focuses on the generation of recombinant antibodies against autoantigens of autoimmune diseases of the skin and other organs. For this purpose, he established antibody and peptide phage display techniques and generated artificial autoantibodies and antibody-derived biologics for use in research and as a basis for novel drugs. He further established methods for the genetic analyses of complex gene loci such as the Fc gamma receptor gene region. His current interest aims at establishing a pipeline for B cell immune repertoire analysis in autoantibody-mediated autoimmune diseases.
