SFB-TR84: Innate Immunity of the Lung – Mechanisms of Pathogen Attack and Host Defence in Pneumonia
Pneumonia represents an enormous socioeconomic burden worldwide as well as a rising medical threat due to dramatically increasing rates of multi- and pan-drug resistant bacteria, and the emergence of viruses with pandemic potential. Thus, novel strategies against pneumonia are sorely needed. This unmet clinical need is directly addressed by the SFB-TR84, which aims to decipher lung-specific molecular events and cellular interactions during infection and inflammation, with the goal of developing new therapeutic concepts against pneumonia.
