Scientific excellence for the people most vulnerable to infection

The RESIST speaker team: Prof. Dr. Thomas Schulz (in the middle) and the two co-speakers Prof. Dr. Gesine Hansen and Prof. Reinhold Förster

Some people become only mildly ill when they ’catch’ viral or bacterial infections, whereas others are affected much more severely. But what are the reasons for these differences? And how can the course of a disease be predicted and personalized treatments developed?

These questions are being addressed by the RESIST Cluster of Excellence team. This will enable them to help people with a weakened immune system, including newborn babies, the elderly, people with congenital immunodeficiency, those whose immune system is suppressed for therapeutic reasons, and implant users.
