Exciting topics, interestingly presented: Every first and third Thursday (except during school holidays), RESIST scientists or top-class researchers from external institutions present their topics at the RESIST seminar series.
Attend these exciting seminars of the Cluster of Excellence RESIST, as a member of RESIST or as a colleague or student.
On 23 November, Prof. Dalpke, Department of Medical Microbiology and Hygiene, Heidelberg University Hospital, will give a lecture. The title of the lecture ist: „Recognition of bacterial RNA by the innate immune system“.
This seminar will take place from 5 to 6 pm in lecture theatre Q, building J6, MHH.
Current Focus of Research of Prof. Dalpke:
A Immunostimulation by nucleic acids: We are studying the recognition of microbial nucleic acids by pattern recognition receptors. We try to elucidate principles that enable Toll-like receptors to differentiate foreign, microbial from self nucleic acids. Specifically, we address the importance of RNA modifications and RNA processing on immune stimulation. Current projects address the functions of RNases in TLR7/8 stimulation. We are also interested in longterm effects of bacterial encounter on innate immune cells.
B Microbiome analysis in cystic fibrosis. In this project we study polymicrobial infections by means of next generation sequencing. We focus on patients suffering from cystic fibrosis (CF) but also use the technique to explore microbiome changes in other diseases. In CF we aim to analyze microbiome alterations in early childhood as well as during exacerbation and focus on interactions of commensal and pathogenic bacteria.
