The experimental subjects will be model organisms, such as Drosophila or Caenorhabditis and cell cultures from single animal or human cells.

 The experimental results will provide insight into, e.g., cell functions in cell clusters, cell differentiation and organ development. The immunological processes will be examined with particular reference to disease-related malfunctions, as they occur in cases of immunodeficiency or in the context of tumor immunology.
