Lamas and Alpacas as a tool for immunological researchMay 16, 2018
Proteins are highly important for lots of processes in our body. To gain more knowledge about their function, researchers would like to modify or completey remove them from our body.
Our Cluster researcher Dr. Florian Schmidt, group leader of an Emmy Noether-Research group at the Institute of Innate Immunity is further developing a method for designing protein-blockers with the help of Alpacas and Lamas.
