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.
We are excited to announce that we will co-host the next LaVision Biotec UltraMicroscope User Meeting in Essen from 20 - 22 March 2018! For more information, check this link.
A new paper has been published.
Visualizing the function and fate of neutrophils in sterile injury and repair.
Our team is looking to grow! There is an open position, which can be viewed here.
