Immunity

Investigating functional immune responses in mammals to micro-organism challenge

The Immunity cluster investigates functional immune responses in mammals to micro-organism challenge across species and between different individuals of the same species living under different environmental conditions asking the core question why responses are different between species and within a species according to genetics and different lifetime environmental influences. The main research interests of the Immunity Cluster lie in the mucosal immune system, early life immune development, trained immunity, vaccine development and RNA biochemistry. Our expertise covers in vitro immunological methods, basic murine immunology, gnotobiology and infectiology, immunology in farm animals as well as research in the context of human clinical studies.
