The German Research Foundation DFG funds a 3-year collaboration of the universities of Mainz and Münster for studies of the complex-regional pain syndrome with 459800 € (2012-2015)

The complex-regional pain syndrome (CRPS) is a neurological-orthopedic-traumatologic pain disease, which develops in approximately 5% of patients for instance after bone fracture. These patients observe, e.g., overheating in the respective limbs, edema, excessive sweating and pain during movement
The aim of the projectes of the physician from Mainz, Frank Birklein, and the chemist / bioanalytician from Münster Simone König is to investigate the inflammatory processes in tissue such as skin and assign them to clinical symptoms in order to prepare for targeted therapy of CRPS.

BMBF (ProINNO) Project 2007-2010

For a collaboration with a small company, Eco Luft- und Raumqualität, Cologne, a project was funded which deals with the identification of protein allergens in dust at the workplace. 25 Mio people suffer from allergies in Germany. Bakers allergy is an allergic skin irritation or even asthma, which is caused by high-molecular compounds in flour, yeast or other components in the air of bakeries. It is recognized as an occupational disease. InfosBased on the methods of proteomics, gel electrophoresis and mass spectrometry, in this project a web-based database will be built which will allow the screening of allergens at the workplace in order to improve prevention.
