For CharitéCentrum12 for Internal Medicine and Dermatology, Department of Dermatology, Venerology and Allergology on Campus Charité Mitte (Univ.-Prof. Dr. Marcus Maurer) we are looking for
(Job code: DM.135.16)
In this project we want to investigate the relevance of inflammasome activation in mast cells during UV-induced inflammation. Mast cells are traditionally seen as man effector cells during allergic reactions, however they are becoming more recognized as key contributors in innate immune responses as well. The can be activated by various danger and damage associated molecules trough pattern recognition receptors such as Toll like receptors, Rig-like receptors and Nod-like receptors. Inflammasomes are an important class of these receptors and they drive inflammatory reactions via the Interleukin 1 beta (IL-1ß). Evidence from our lab and the literature indicate that mast cells express functional inflammasomes and which contribute to lesions in patients with autoinflammatory conditions. Here we want to explore the importance of MC inflammasome activation using an experimental model of UV-induced inflammation.
The tariff classification will be done according to the personal conditions with salary group 13 (65 %) of the tariff TV-Charité, limited to the end of the project on 31.08.2019.
