Working group Prof. Dr. Bernd Bufe

Research at Kaiserslautern University of Applied Sciences helps to understand the biological mechanisms of the immune system.

Molecular Immunology

Can we trigger disease factors? Searching for receptors for immune-specific proteins

High-throughput microscopy

Up to a million sample images per week. High-throughput microscopy allows rapid screening of immunologically relevant compounds.

Cell culture

Testing active ingredients on established cell lines. Direct detection of signal transduction by proteins.

The working group

Prof. Dr. Bernd Bufe


Prof. Dr. Bernd Bufe and his team are investigating the molecular mechanisms that enable the detection of bacteria. He is interested in the evolutionary developments that have given rise to the different functional properties of chemoreceptors and that have led to the developme
