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

Study with identical twins shows that the early form of multiple sclerosis has a specific pattern
The tremendous heterogeneity of the human population presents a major obstacle in understanding how autoimmune diseases like multiple sclerosis (MS) contribute to variations in human peripheral immune signatures. To minimize heterogeneity, SFB researchers from Munich and Muenster made use of a unique cohort of 43 monozygotic twin pairs clinically discordant for MS and searched for […]...more

Breakthrough: SFB scientsists explain pathomechanism of Susac Syndrome
Münster. Neuroinflammation is often associated with blood-brain-barrier dysfunction, which contributes to neurological tissue damage. In a paper published in the renowned journal Nature Communications SFB 128 scientists from Mueenster reveal the pathophysiology of Susac syndrome (SuS), an enigmatic neuroinflammatory disease with central nervous system (CNS) endotheliopathy. By investigating immune cells from the blood, cerebrospinal fluid, […]...more
