Establishment of new synergies in the field of immunology in Munich

Ali Önder Yildirim, acting co-director at the ILBD and head of the research group "Immunopathology of COPD", together with Carolin Daniel from the Institute for Diabetes Research (IDF1) organized the first Helmholtz-Munich Immunology Workshop. More than 100 scientists from the immunological research fields took part in the workshop on 24 July 2019 on the topic "Regulation of immunity in the context of environmental and metabolic health". The aim of the workshop was to establish new research collaborations.

At the heart of the workshop were the eight scientific presentations covering the full range of immunological research from molecular mechanisms of regulation from lymphocyte activation to monogenetic immunological diseases. "The immunology workshop is intended to set a trend, as it is the first workshop to focus on the regulation of immune cells, which is a major problem in most chronic diseases," said Ali Önder Yildirim.

An informal discussion among scientists rounded off the workshop. Many participants used this exchange opportunity to identify and develop common interests in immunological research. "It was a very successful workshop, which showed promising possibilities for the initiation and intensification of research collaborations within the immunological landscape of Munich" summarized Carolin Daniel.

As a follow up the 2nd.Helmholtz Immunology Symposium will take place on December 4, 2019 with the aim to further expand the started collaborations and initiated synergies.
