We are delighted to welcome you to the Institute of Molecular Medicine & Experimental Immunology.

The Institute of Molecular Medicine and Experimental Immunology (IMMEI) was founded in 2002. It is located in the Biomedical center II on the Medical faculty on the Venusberg-Campus of the Friedrich-Wilhelms-Universität Bonn. The scientific mission of the IMMEI is to understand the molecular and cellular mechanisms controlling immune responses in tissues, resulting either in inflammation, immunity or immune tolerance. Comprehensive knowledge of the physiological regulation of immune responses is essential to understand the defense against infections and tumors and to avoid autoimmunity. Ultimately, we aim to develop new therapeutic strategies to modulate local immune responses to benefit patients.
