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 (Prof. Dr. Oliver Pabst). It is dedicated to the investigation of the intestinal immune system. In addition thereto, the Emmy Noether junior research group of PD 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 (PD Dr. Immo Prinz).
