Mechanisms of brain inflammation (MBI)

Objective

Aim of this project is to define the mechanisms, how inflammatory cells enter the central nervous system in vivo and to identify the key molecules on inflammatory cells and within the CNS that control brain inflammation. The basis of this project are novel technologies of tracing of inflammatory cells, which allow to follow them during their migration through different body compartments, as well alto resolute them for phenotypic and functional analysis. This project will provide answers to fundamental questions on the pathogenesis of inflammatory brain diseases and may lead to new targets for anti-inflammatory treatment.
