N5 Organ crosstalks in IMIDs (Günther)
Role of extracellular vesicles as biological shuttle system for inter-kingdom communication and organ crosstalk
Term: 01.07.2021 – 31.03.2025
Both host environmental components as well as host cells release Extracellular vesicles (EVs) who are increasingly recognized for their immune-stimulatory properties and their potential role as biological shuttle system for inter-kingdom communication. Within this project, we will elucidate the role of extracellular vesicles as communication system and the impact of such vesicles on the pathogenesis of immune-mediated inflammatory diseases.
