Viral Immune Modulation

A microbial pathogen enters our body - but not unnoticed! Immune cells have specialised receptors to detect the presence of the invaders. These receptors initiate defence mechanisms as soon as the pathogen has entered the body – unless they are disarmed.

Our Research

Our immune system has two main defence lines to eliminate pathogens entering our body: the innate and the adaptive immune system. While the latter leads to a precisely coordinated defence of the pathogen days after infection, the innate immune response acts at the very beginning of the infection right after invasion of our body.
