PhD – Innate Immune mechanisms defending from blood-based infections

This project will analyze innate immune resposes that rapidly inhibit infections induced by bacteria circulating in blood. Such bacteria include for example intestinal bacteria (microbiota) that turn into pathogens when entering blood. The focus of the project is to elucidate in particular the cellular and molecular regulators of antimicrobial immune reactions that take place in the microcirculation of infected organs. Since intravascular immune mechanisms are involved in the development of sepsis, the analyses should help to better understand the early stages of sepsis. The project involves cooperations with national and international partners. The methods comprise among others microscopical, biochemical and immunohistochemical techniques.
We seek for a responsible, ambitious and flexible PhD student. We offer a competent and continuous supervision of the PhD thesis in a cooperative team.
