Collaborative Research Centre 1009 „Breaking Barriers – Immune cells and pathogens at cell / matrix barriers“

Biological barriers organize compartmentalization within multi-cellular organisms, thereby controlling a number of pivotal processes of cells. Perturbations of barrier functions are central in many inflammatory diseases. Our research network addresses fundamental aspects of the formation, function and penetration of biological barriers in homeostasis and inflammatory diseases.  read more
