Neuroimmune cardiovascular interface

Andreas Habenicht, Changjun Yin, Sarajo Mohanta

Our group focuses on five areas of the immunology and neuroimmunology of cardiovascular diseases during aging: i. Define atherosclerosis as a bona fide autoimmune disease; ii. examine tolerance dysfunction in atherosclerosis; iii. identify the impact of artery tertiary lymphoid organs (ATLOs) on atherosclerosis; iv. delineate neuroimmune cardiovascular interfaces (NICIs) and artery-brain circuits (ABCs); and v. study the choroid plexus as a major gateway for circulatory immune cells to enter the brain.
