The new Transregio 'Nucleic Acid Immunity' from the Unversity Bonn, TU Dresden and LMU Munich is funded by the DFG for a first round of 4 years from July 1st on.

Prof. Gunther Hartmann is the speaker of this consortium of researcher who will investigate the molecular mechanisms of recognizing foreign nucleic acids by our immune system.

This is of special importance since the malfunction of this system leads to various diseases such as chronic viral infections, inflammation and autoimmune disorders.

11 research groups of the medical faculty from the University Bonn are participating in this Transregio.
