Project description

This collaborative interfaculty project aims at the development of novel

therapeutic approaches for the treatment of infectious and allergic

respiratory diseases and the elucidation of the underlying mechanisms. Animal

models of Mycobacterium tuberculosis and Influenza infection along with models

for mild to severe asthma will be combined with modified vaccinogens, immune

interference and in situ siRNA delivery.
