Molecular Immunology

Prof. Dr. Manuela Rossol is the new FGW Professor of Molecular Immunology at the Brandenburg University of Technology Cottbus-Senftenberg (BTU) as of 01.10.2022.

The immune system undergoes age-related changes that are relevant for the aging process itself, as well as for the development of age-related inflammations, susceptibility to infections, cancers, and neurodegenerative processes. So-called autoimmunity is also of central importance for many diseases that are particularly common in old age; the connections are currently still poorly understood. The new professorship will investigate immunologically relevant processes in age-associated diseases at the molecular level and develop new therapeutic approaches from the research.
