ImmunoSensation2: the immune sensory system


The identification of important players and functions of the immune system and two extremely successful biotech spin-offs are among the outstanding achievements of the current funding phase for this cluster. With “ImmunoSensation2: the immunosensory system”, Bonn researchers want to continue the success story of the existing Cluster of Excellence ImmunoSensation.

While the emphasis so far has been on fundamental research in particular of the innate immune system, now the mechanisms of immune intelligence are to be uncovered, i.e. the question of how the body succeeds in adapting immune responses to specific situations and then remembers this in order to be optimally prepared for similar challenges in the future.

This can help predict and treat autoimmune diseases as well as chronic infections, atherosclerosis, diabetes, tumors and Alzheimer's disease
