Studying immune cell function in vivo
Welcome to our website!
At the IEII, we investigate the function of immune cells in the context of an intact animal organism. Using advanced methods of optical imaging and innovative experimental systems, we analyze how defined populations of immune cells behave under physiological and pathological conditions. The underlying molecular mechanisms are elucidated. We focus on disease models of fungal and bacterial lung infection as well as sterile inflammation during stroke or tumor growth.
