New Associated Research Group

A joint co-operation between Prof. Georg Schett, Head of Internal Medicine 3 at the University Clinic and OICE will foster and extend OICE's multi-photon imaging platform.
S. Uderhardt, MD  
 "I will use integrative tissue-level bio-imaging to elucidate the cellular and molecular mechanisms tissues employ to protect themselves against unwanted immune responses. Specifically, I will focus on the biology and the homeostatic functions of interstitial macrophages in vivo and explore how these cells operate during the onset of inflammation. Ultimate goal of my research is to therapeutically exploit the tissue-protective properties of these cells in order not only to treat but also prevent inflammatory diseases. As part of the OICE-ERU I will establish and further advance intravital as well as in situ functional imaging approaches as tools for the Exploration of spatiotemporal dynamics of immune effector cells within the context of biological tissues."
