Pathophysiology of Rheumatic Inflammation
Program area 1
This programme area is investigating the causes of chronic rheumatic inflammation. Central questions are: how are these diseases initiated and what maintains them? How can they be cured in a targeted and definitive way? The research goal is therefore to design selective and curative therapies. In order to be able to use these therapies effectively, researchers are also developing prognostic biomarkers to reliably assess the course of the disease and the response to a specific form of therapy.
