Focus funding on coronavirus

The German Research Foundation (DFG) is funding 33 research projects on infection with SARS-CoV-2 with a total of 3.6 million euros for a maximum of one year. A team from the Cluster of Excellence ImmunoSensation receives this new type of focus funding on COVID-19.

Christian Bode from the Clinic for Anaesthesiology and Operative Intensive Care Medicine and Christoph Wilhelm from the Institute for Clinical Chemistry and Clinical Pharmacology and the Cluster of Excellence ImmunoSensation2 at the University of Bonn are now supported with the project "The role of ketogenesis in the immune response against SARS-CoV-2" as part of the focus funding. It is about whether and how the immune system remains fully functional against the novel corona virus even during a reduced food intake in COVID-19.
