Studying immune cell function in vivo
Welcome to our website!
At the IEII, we investigate the function of immune cells in the context of an intact animal organism. Using advanced methods of optical imaging and innovative experimental systems, we analyze how defined populations of immune cells behave under physiological and pathological conditions. The underlying molecular mechanisms are elucidated. We focus on disease models of fungal and bacterial lung infection as well as sterile inflammation during stroke or tumor growth.
Two new papers have been published.
Surveillance of Myelodysplastic Syndrome via Migration Analyses of Blood Neutrophils: A Potential Prognostic Tool and Myeloid-derived suppressor cells control B cell accumulation in the central nervous system during autoimmunity.
A new paper has been published.
Neutrophils instruct homeostatic and pathological states in naive tissues.
Our team is looking to grow! There is an open position for master students, which can be viewed here.
