Reserarch Unit Molecular Immune Regulation

Our focus

The Research Unit Molecular Immune Regulation (AMIR) investigates the differentiation of T helper cells with a focus on post-transcriptional gene regulation. T helper cell differentiation enables specific immune responses, however, hyper- or hypofunctional T helper cells critically contribute to inflammatory and autoimmune diseases or to the lack of immune responses during chronic infections and tumor formation, respectively. We analyze molecular interactions and search for diagnostic markers to develop new therapeutic approaches.
