“We do research to benefit patients” – an interview

Prof Johannes Roth is investigating the causes of inflammatory reactions. For many years he worked as a basic researcher and a paediatrician at the same time. His greatest aim is to discover basic mechanisms which can lead to diagnostic or therapeutic processes.
