Today the DFG informed us that the Clinical Research Unit 303 „Pemphigoid Diseases“ gets funded for at least three years with an option for three additional years. This CRC will be coordinated by Detlef Zillikens and Christian Sadik from the Dermatology department. The IIEG is, together with Inke König, involved in a Z-project – Biostatistics and Systems Medicine Core Unit.
Pemphigoid diseases (PD) are a group of subepidermal autoimmune blistering skin diseases. The epidemiology and pathogenesis of PD is not entirely clear. This CRC aims to unravel the pathomechanism of this threatening disease.
