Mononuclear phagocytes form a body-wide network of myeloid immune cells devoted to homeostasis maintenance and immune defense of the organism.
The Jung lab studies these monocytes, dendritic cells and macrophages in physiology and pathophysiology using gene expression and epigenome profiling, as well as a combination of conditional mutagenesis, in vivo cell imaging, cell ablation and cell transfer strategies. Current focus is given to monocytes, gut macrophages and brain macrophages, including microglia.
