Research Training Group RTG1743: Genes, environment, inflammation
Within this Research Training Group we will study the environmental influences responsible for the development of complex, chronic diseases. Moreover, we will systematically examine the previously understudied interplay between the (micro)-environment and predisposing genetic factors. 

International Research Training Group IRTG1911: Immunoregulation of of Inflammation in Allergy and Infection
The major goal is to provide an international network of training and research centered around projects that aim at identifying novel pathways that initiate, maintain and resolve chronic infectious and allergic diseases.

Center for Research on Inflamed Skin
CRIS is a multidisciplinary research center, in which clinical and basic scientists collaborate to study defined disease pathways, identify therapeutic targets, and translate these findings into clinical applications.

RTG1957 - Adipocyte Brain Crosstalk
The Graduiertenkolleg 1957 offers focused research projects and a structured training programs. In an interdisciplinary research approach they address the effects of hormones derived from adipose tissue (adipokines) on CNS function and, in turn, the control of adipose tissue and body weight by the brain.
