Public Outreach (6)
Careers Day 2024

As part of public outreach of the TRR 274, The Institute of Neuroimmunology and Multiple Sclerosis Research (IMSF, headed by Prof. Alexander Flügel) explained how immune cells migrate into the brain and spinal cord and can be visualized directly in the tissue. Under guidance, the students were able to embed, cut, stain and microscope tissue themselves. In a theoretical part, the development of multiple sclerosis, an inflammatory disease of the central nervous system, was explained and the connection between the microscoped structures and the disease was established.
