Research Projects of CRC1403
The individual projects are grouped into two research areas focusing on, (A) cell death in
inflammation and disease, and (B) cell death mechanisms in host defence. The projects
in the two research areas share a common focus on the mechanisms regulating and sensing cell
death and the functional implications of different types of RCD at the tissue and organismal level.
Therefore, the two research areas will be connected by multiple points of interaction related to the
induction, execution and sensing of RCD, as well as the local and systemic effects of cell death.
Research Area A: Cell death in inflammation and disease
Research Area B: Cell death mechanisms in host defence
CP01 - Central Tasks
CP03 - Cell Death Assessment Unit
