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 their physiological context under steady state and pathological conditions using gene expression and epigenetic profiling, as well as a combination of conditional mutagenesis, in vivo cell imaging, cell ablation and transfer strategies.
