y, and mass spectrometry. The researchers aim to advance our understanding of the recently discovered prokaryotic immune system, which is based on "Clustered Regularly Interspaced Short Palindromic Repeats" (CRISPR). CRISPR are segments of nucleic acid sequences containing multiple repeats; found in the genetic material of many bacteria and archaea, they comprise a mechanism which confers resistance to exogenous elements such as viruses. (Spokesperson: Prof. Dr. Anita Marchfelder, University of Ulm)

Clinical Research Units

A Clinical Research Unit comprised of working groups from the fields of molecular biology and clinical immunology will study the molecular pathogenesis of chronic inflammatory bowel disease in an effort to optimise therapeutic approaches to its treatment. Crohn's disease and ulcerative colitis are autoimmune diseases of the gastrointestinal tract, and have proven very difficult to treat in spite of the development of new immuno-suppressive forms of medication. Improving our understanding of their pathogenesis is key to the development of more efficient and targeted forms of therapy. (Spokesperson: Prof. Markus F. Neurath, Friedrich-Alexander University of Erlangen-Nuremberg)

Borderline personality disorder, commonly abbreviated as BPD, is a widespread and complex mental and psychological disorder. If left untreated, BPD can develop into a chronic and seriously debilitating condition. Individuals with BPD may become suicidal, inflict self-harm, or display aggressive impulses. The new Clinical Research Unit aims to analyse the individual role of emotional disorders and social interaction within BPD. Together, researchers from the fields of neuropsychology, neuro-imaging and psychosomatic medicine plan to promote the development of psychotherapeutic approaches to treating BPD and to lay the foundations for future research efforts focussing on the disorder's molecular aspects.
