In this research area, we couple the neuroimmunological and vascular research with our expertise to design and carry out clinical studies. A direct, clinic-oriented network of basic research, clinical research and patient care is implemented. Our focus are vascular-immunological processes from the immunological reaction after cerebral ischemia to cerebral vasculitis.
The main points of the Schilling Professorship are:
- To develop innovative mouse models and to use innovative techniques in vivo and in vitro to identify and characterize new target structures and to introduce them into preclinical and clinical trials.
- Use state-of-the-art methods such as Magnetic Particle Imaging (MPI) to examine the inflammatory reaction from the blood-brain barrier (BBB) to the parenchyma.
- Carry out parallel analyzes on human biomaterials in order to achieve an optimal and rapid translation of the animal experimental data.
- To expand the area of inflammation research in stroke to include for example diseases such as cerebral vasculitis
