Novel molecular intervention technology for infectious and allergic respiratory diseases

This collaborative interfaculty project aims at the development of novel
therapeutic approaches for the treatment of infectious and allergic
respiratory diseases and the elucidation of the underlying mechanisms. Animal
models of Mycobacterium tuberculosis and Influenza infection along with models
for mild to severe asthma will be combined with modified vaccinogens, immune
interference and in situ siRNA delivery.
