Welcome at the Institute for Molecular Medicine
The Institute for Molecular Medicine was founded in 2009 and coordinates the Master programme Molecular Medicine (MMM). The Institute's research area is Immunology with focuses on the biology and function of innate lymphocytes (Steinle group) as well as on T-cell development (Krueger group).
Find out more about the people working at the Institute for Molecular Medicine and their research interests.
The main research interest of our laboratory concerns the molecular mechanisms governing the activation of Natural Killer (NK) cells in humans.
Our laboratory is primarily interested in understanding molecular and cellular mechanisms underlying the formation of T cells.
We are working on two aspects of T-cell development:
- a quantitative spatio-temporal model of T cell development
- post-transcriptional control of lymphocyte development by
