Institute of Immunology


  • Prof. Dr. Alexander Scheffold

The Institute of Immunology conducts research in the fields of cellular and molecular immunology. It focuses on signal conduction pathways in cells and function analysis of human immune cell responses. Research scientists are members of the Cluster of Excellence 'Inflammation at Interfaces'. The Institute also operates flow cytometric cell sorting as a central platform and proteomic analysis using differential 2D gel electrophoresis.

In health care, the Institute has responsibility for flow cytometric laboratory diagnostics for the UKSH.  Furthermore, the Institute operates an outpatient department for couples with immunological infertility who wish to have children and carries out immunotherapy here.
