Research Training Group RTG 1331



The overall goal is the establishment and characterization of model systems for degenerative processes and diseases on the basis of cell biological knowledge. An enhanced focus is on cellular reactions in the context of complex systems (human tissue, co-cultures, animal models). The systems are characterized for their reaction to external disturbances (microbes, antigens, toxciants) and for the possibility of their controlled modulation (pharmacological, regenerative, adaptive).
