Modelling of invasive A. fumigatus infections in the human lung
In co-operation with PD Dr. A. Mosig our group established a microfluidic lung-on-a-chip model to analyse invasive Aspergillus infections. The 3D model allows simulation of a clinical tissue infection and thus enables investigation of the immune response as well as drug testing. In addition, a cooperation with the group of Prof. Dr. M.T. Figge allows quantitative analyses of growth behavior.
