How does the immune system manage to fight invasive pathogens without damaging the body? And why does it sometimes turn against the body after all? A team from the Chair of Genetics at FAU has been exploring these questions together with the university hospitals in Erlangen and Regensburg.

A new international master programme " Integrated Immunology” (iImmune) has started at the Department of Biology by winter semester 2018/19. iImmune is jointly performed by the Department of Biology and the Faculty of Medicine at the FAU and generously supported by the Elite Network of Bavaria. A central task of the Master programme is to integrate basic and clinical immunology training in a research-oriented way. The FAU has a very strong research focus on immunology research, both in medicine and biology, which is reflected in many collaborative research centres and PhD graduate schools that deal with this topic.
