Illegal use of the name of the Institute of Immunology/Prof Förster for internet advertising
Dear visitors: We would like to inform you that the Institute of Immunology at MHH and Prof. Dr. Förster’s name are mentioned illegally on the internet in connection with a product called “Elixir for Health” for advertising purposes. We would like to clarify that there is no connection between the Institute of Immunology/ Prof. Dr. Förster and this product. Neither are we manufacturing it, nor do we support it in any way. Moreover, we are not carrying out any kind of investigation with respect to any “elixirs for health” nor do we believe in their effect.

At the Institute of Immunology, Prof. Dr. Reinhold Förster and his co-workers investigate the dynamic processes of the immune system during the immune response to pathogens. The main focus is on the function of chemokines and chemokine receptors for the space-time distribution of T-cells, B-cells and various kinds of dendritic cells. Processes of cellular differentiation, activation/suppression, as well as adhesion/communication, which are studied in vitro, but mainly in vivo with the help of mouse models, are also comprised.


In the year 2009, a Professorship for mucosal immunology was affiliated to the Institute. It is dedicated to the investigation of the intestinal immune system. In addition thereto, the research group “Regenerative Immunology”  of Prof. Dr. Andreas Krueger forms part of the Institute: it studies the molecular mechanisms of the differentiation of T-cell-progenitors. Other research topics at the Institute of Immunology are the significance of CD155 (Dr. Günter Bernhardt), translational approaches for the avoidance of the Graft-versus-Host-disease (PD Dr. Christian Könecke), as well as unconventional T-cells such as FoxP3+ regulatory T-cells and gamma-delta T-cells (Prof. Dr. Immo Prinz).
