Symposium on Molecular Signaling in Health and Disease


In memory of Falk Weih we have organized a "Symposium on Molecular Signaling in Health and Disease."

Falk Weih has significantly influenced the scientific focus of our institute. His most important scientific achievements lay in the delineation of molecular mechanisms which play a role in the development of the immune system as well as in the genesis of age-related immune deficiencies. He passed away on October 28, 2014. 

We have invited six renowned scientific colleagues and friends, who will present their recent research in the field of immunology and neurobiology.
