CRC 650: Cellular approaches to a suppression of unwanted immune reactions - from bench to bedside

The researchers involved in the project aim to find new conceptions for the therapy of diseases caused by unwanted immune reactions such as autoimmune diseases, allergies and transplant rejection. Up until now only unspecific immunosuppressive medications are available. Their effectiveness is limited, their side-effects considerable. They need to be administered over a long period of time and are, therefore, very expensive.

CRC 665: Developmental disturbances in the nervous system

Progress in genetics and microbiology within the past twenty years has made it possible to analyze molecules that control the development of the central nervous system. Researchers can now identify genetic changes which lead to the formation of developmental disorders. However, the mechanisms or molecules that form and maintain neural circuits have not yet been fully investigated, and this is the challenge for both basic and clinical neuroscience researchers working in this Collaborative Research Centre.

CRC 740: From molecules to modules: organization and dynamics of functional cellular units

Functional modules are in the focus of the investigations. A functional module is considered to be an ensemble of macromolecules (proteins or RNA) which has a specific, largely autonomous function in biological cells. Among the functional modules there are macromolecular machines like ribosomes and proteasomes as well as unstable, dynamically organized protein ensembles similar to those found in intracellular transport.

CRC/TR 43: The brain as a target of inflammatory processes (Transregio)

Immunological processes are of singnificance not only in "classical" inflammatory diseases of the nervous system, as for example multiple sclerosis. They are fairly common also in primarily non-inflammatory conditions such as strokes, cerebral tumors and neuro-degenerative illnesses. Research within the framework of this project aims to investigate and find out joint cellular and molecular mechanisms and to develop new therapies.

CRC/TR 54: Growth and survival, plasticity and cellular interactivity of lymphatic neoplasies (Transregio)

Research within this project is concerned with the investigation of cellular processes going on at the onset and during the spreading of malignant diseases of immune cells (lymphomas). It is generally understood that fundamental principles of tumour formation valid in cases of lymphoma will also be relevant to other types of cancer. The research results are to contribute to novel therapies of cancer.

CRC/TR 84: Congenital immunity of the lung: mechanisms of pathogenic attacks and host defence in pneumonia

Pneumonia is a very common disease. 12 to 14 per cent of the patients who are hosptilized with the condition die eventually although they were given adequate amounts of antibiotics. In the framework of this project researchers investigate how bacteria and viruses cause damage to the lung and how the lung reacts to eliminate the pathogens. The researchers involved aim to contribute to new approaches to the therapy of pneumonia, which in addition to antibiotics will reduce the high pneumonia mortality rates.
