The latest work from the lab is out (Frontline research) in volume 103, issue 1 of Journal of Leukocyte Biology. The study "Proliferation of Ly6C+ monocytes during urinary tract infections is regulated by IL-6 trans-signalling" was headed by our former graduate student Akanksha Dixit, now working in Bonn, and supported by various co-authors. CONGRATULATIONS!

We are proud to present you with a video which the renowned journal Gut had asked us to produce alongside the paper published recently regarding new findings on POI.
Amazing imaging of blood vessels within organs
Have a look at todays amazing imaging possibilities of blood vessels within organs. Such images are being visualized at the Institute for Experimental Immunology and Imaging, Department of Immunodynamics.
LichtscheibenmikroskopieWahnsinn, wie man heute Blutgefäße in Organen sichtbar machen kann #Lichtscheibenmikroskopie . Könnt ihr das Organ erkennen? Solche Aufnahmen entstehen im Institut für Experimentelle Immunologie und Bildgebung, Abteilung Immundynamik http://bit.ly/2A8Wg6F

Development of SCHNELL
Our Bioinformatic group, Camille, has started to develop SCHNELL, a program to Statistically Compute Histology Networks to Enable Leukocyte Localization.
MALDI Imaging Data in collaboration with the ZeTeM in Bremen
In collaboration with the ZeTeM, we could generate first proteome data on UPEC-infected urinary bladders by MALDI Imaging. This is a first milestone for finding novel biomarkers in this frequent infection.
