Young Investigators

We are young postdoctoral fellows or PhD students chosen to represent the numerous young investigators involved in the CRC in many aspects of its organizational structure being their voice. We are also meant to help improving the social and scientific experience of young scientists within the CRC by promoting interactions between the different sites, organizing theoretical and practical workshops, suggesting scientific activities, lab rotations and conferences. The other young investigator can contact us with ideas and suggestions or for questions.  We are

Publication: Teriflunomide treatment for multiple sclerosis modulates T cell mitochondrial respiration with affinity-dependent effects.
Muenster. For the first time scientists from the University of Münster could show that multiple sclerosis (MS) alters the energy metabolism of T cells during acute phases of disease exacerbation. Therapeutic interventions targeting the metabolism of activated T cells display new potential avenues for treatment of patients with MS affecting around 250,000 people in Germany. The […]...more

Publication: Calcium influx through plasma-membrane nanoruptures drives axon degeneration in a model of multiple sclerosis.
Munich.  Here SFB researchers from Munich use in vivo calcium imaging in a multiple sclerosis model to show that cytoplasmic calcium levels determine the choice between axon loss and survival. Calcium can enter the axon through nanoscale ruptures of the axonal plasma membrane that are induced in inflammatory lesions. Neuron doi: 10.1016/ j.neuron.2018.12.023...more
