Organ-Specific Immune Regulation

Infections and inflammatory diseases can appear in all organs and tissues. The development of these diseases is influenced by the underlying pathogen, the immune system as well as local organ-specific factors. These three factors regulate one another in a complex interaction. The goal of our scientists is to understand the crosstalk between the immune-system and the respective organ-specific factors and its impact on the development of infections. This research should result in new therapeutic options for the treatment of infections.
