Research Center Borstel contributes to a new Priority Program

The Research Center Borstel contributes three projects to the new Priority Program 1580 "Intracellular Compartments as Places of Pathogen-Host-Interaction“ funded by the German Research Foundation.
Main questions which will be addressed in this natinal network are the following:

  • Which are the constituents of pathogen-containing compartments?
  • Which (patho-)physiological conditions are found in these compartments?
  • Which pathogen- and host-derived compounds contribute to the establishment and the maintenance and disruption of these compartments?
  • Which interactions and vesicular trafficking events occur between the pathogen-containing compartment and other compartments of the infected cell and how are these interactions regulated?

The network is coordinated by Prof. Dr. Albert Haas, University Bonn.
