Hicham received his Diploma degree (M.Sc.) in Genetics, Biochemistry and Maths at the University of Cologne, Germany in 2002. During his Diploma thesis, he worked on the antigen peptide transporter TAP. In 2008, he received his Ph.D. degree in Genetics, from the University of Cologne, Germany. He performed the practical part of his PhD in Max von Pettenkofer Institute in Munich, where he stayed as postdoc until end of 2011. During this time he succeeded in developing a highly sensitive IL-10 reporter (ITIB) mouse model using for the first time beta-lactamase as reporter in mice. In 2012 Hicham joined Klaus’s group. His current research is focusing, among others, on investigating the signaling pathways involved in IL-10 expression regulation and the role of IL-10-producing cells during immune responses using ITIB mice and murine models of infectious and autoimmune diseases
