About Us

Welcome on the website of the Institute of Immunology!

The Institute of Immunology examines the interplay between pathogens and the immune system of infected hosts. Focus of interest are infections with parasitic worms, and, in particular, immunomodulatory mechanisms leading to the long-term survival of the parasites in immunocompetent hosts. The research contributes to the development of novel intervention strategies and therapeutic approaches against widely spread helminth infections of animals and humans. In addition, the deciphered evolutionary-evolved immune evasion mechanisms are used to interfere with misdirected excessive inflammatory processes in animals and humans. A more detailed overview of the research program of the Institute of Immunology can be found here.
