At the Leibniz ScienceCampus InfectoOptics, scientists in the re-search project BLOODi are developing a dynamic haemogram. They want to use new optical technologies to recognise infectious disea-ses and their pathogens in whole blood in the fastest way possible. In order to discover how individual blood cells behave in the case of an infection and how they interact with pathogens, biologists, physicists, bioinformaticians and mathematicians need to pool their expertise and fi nd a common language.
