About the institute
In 2018, the new Institute of Cardiovascular Immunology was founded at the University Hospital of Bonn. Prof. Kato was given the opportunity to share his expertise in the field of innate immunity with the lifely research community of Bonn.
In 2020, we happily welcomed Jun.-Prof. Stephanie Jung as the leader of the group „Cellular Virology“.
We have built a young and ambitious international team with a scientifically diverse background which is continiously growing. Together we investigate our three main interests in research which are autoimmunity, viral infections and extracellular vesicles. The group is embedded into the Cluster of Excellence „ImmunoSensation2“ in Bonn, and the SFB/Transregio 237 „Nucleic Acid Immunity“ both funded by the DFG.
