DZL researchers at Helmholtz Munich and their collaborators developed the Human Lung Cell Atlas using artificial intelligence (AI)-based techniques. This atlas elucidates the diversity of single lung cell types and allows learning about lung biology...
Severe courses of infection with SARS-CoV-2 are characterized not only by strong immune activation and inflammatory reactions, but above all by dysfunction of the vascular system.
Project proposal in the key area of "Pathophysiology: Immunomodulation and Control" of the COFONI research network supported by the state of Lower Saxony is now successfully funded.
An international research team led by DZL scientists Professor Dr. Danny Jonigk and Christopher Werlein was able to demonstrate changes in blood vessels caused by infection with SARS-CoV-2.
Successful collaboration of scientists from the German Centers for Lung Research (DZL), Infection Research (DZIF) and Cardiovascular Research (DZHK) elucidates mechanism of brain damage in SARS-CoV-2 infection.
