IMMUCO - Chronic inflammatory diseases
The surface of the gastrointestinal tract represents the largest area where the organism interacts with the surrounding environment. At this interface of the body a highly sophisticated immune system recognizes a variety of endogenous bacteria or food antigens. A variety of research groups cooperate within the program. It focuses on the analyses of the specific conditions of mucosal T-cell activation and differentiation that eventually define the quality of immune responses. Experimental approaches range from in vitro studies or animal models to clinical applications.
