Prof. Dr. Olaf Groß, principal invetigator in the CRC 1160 (C02N), receives ERC proof of concept funding for his project IMMUNOSTIM. He and his team are testing whether a class of new immune-activating agents, that they have discovered, can increase the effectiveness of cancer immunotherapies or vaccines against infectious diseases. As part of the funding, they discovered a new class of small molecules that act like a turbo booster for the immune system.
