CANCELLED! Wissenschaft in Kölner Häusern "Infection – How the body cells defend the attack"

Speaker: PHD Lena Pernas (MPI-Age)

When we contract an infection we can have all sorts of symptoms: We may feel tired, we have a temperature, our limps ache, we have a sore tummy or even have to vomit. Depending on the infection we feel very sick and have to go to see a doctor. But why do we feel so ill and what is happening in our bodies? The answer is a constant fight takes place
within us. Pathogens try to invade the body and reproduce, the body defends itself and tries to destroy them. A previously unknown aspect of this: pathogens and hosts also compete for nutrients within cells.
Lena Pernas talks about her research on a human parasite and why mitochondria, normally known as energy suppliers, are important in the defence against this intruder.
