Who we are

Across all four sites, our leading neurologists have a neuroimmunological focus and are embedded in strong neuroscientific and immunological communities.  In addition, each site makes its own specific contributions to the initiative.  Leading the research at each of these sites are:

  • Rhine-Main Neuroscience Network: Stefan Bittner, Tobias Bopp, Sergiu Groppa, Helmut Jonuleit, Jonathan Kipnis, Detlef Schuppan,  Albrecht Stroh, Jacky Trotter, Ari Waisman, Nina Wettschureck and Frauke Zipp
  • Munich neuroimmunologists: Klaus Dornmair, Bernhard Hemmer, Reinhard Hohlfeld, Naoto Kawakami, Martin Kerschensteiner, Thomas Korn , Gurumoorthy Krishnamoorthy, Klaus Lehmann-Horn, Edgar Meinl and Mikael Simons
  • Münster Center: Thomas Budde, Catharina Groß, Luisa Klotz, Tanja Kuhlmann, Karin Loser, Sven Meuth, Hans-Christian Pape, Michael Schäfers, Nicholas Schwab, Lydia Sorokin, Heinz Wiendl and Alexander Zarbock
  • Bochum Center: Ralf Gold and Aiden Haghikia

Furthermore, there are three scientists associated to the network:

Featured Publication: Integrated single cell analysis of blood and cerebrospinal fluid leukocytes in multiple sclerosis
Münster. Cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) protects the central nervous system (CNS) and analyzing CSF aids the diagnosis of CNS diseases, but our understanding of CSF leukocytes remains superficial. Here, using single cell transcriptomics, SFB researchers identify a specific border-associated composition and transcriptome of CSF leukocytes. In an article published in Nature Communications, they show that multiple […]...more
