About our Institute & our Groups
At the Institute of Experimental Immunology & Imaging (IEII), we investigate the function of immune cells in the context of an intact animal organism. Using advanced methods of optical imaging and innovative experimental systems, we analyze how defined populations of immune cells behave under physiological and pathological conditions. The underlying molecular mechanisms are elucidated.
The AG Gunzer focuses on disease models of fungal and bacterial lung infection as well as sterile inflammation during stroke or tumor growth.
The aim of our Department Immunodynamics is to decode immunological landscapes for the development of novel therapeutic approaches against infectious diseases and cancer.
Our IMaging FaCility Essen (IMCES) brings together state-of-the-art equipment and expertise in light and electron microscopy, in vivo and intravital imaging, and image analysis.
