Title: Dendritic cells in early life. Immune sentinels wise beyond their age?

Barbara Schraml’s research focuses on understanding the precise organ-specific functions of dendritic cells in immunity and in the context of their local tissue environment.

Title: The multiple roles of STAT1 in IFN signaling and vascular inflammation: Towards diagnostic potential and therapeutic target.

Hans Bluyssen’ group aims at genome-wide and mechanistic understanding of the STAT- and IRF-dependent signal integration between TLR4 and IFNs (Type I and II) in vascular and immune cells in culture, and in experimental and clinical atherosclerosis.

Title: It takes two to tango: the immune system and the CMV

Luka Cicin-Sain‘s research group studies ubiquitous viruses that are persist for life in most people worldwide. In particular, our focus is on herpesviruses, whose persistence during latent infection shapes the immune system and its functionality.
