The Mannheim Institute for Innate Immunoscience (MI3) is a cross-sectional institute of the Medical Faculty Mannheim of Heidelberg University, and serves as a hub for innovative immunology research with an emphasis on innate immunity.

The MI3 is intimately connected to the four research areas of the Medical Faculty Mannheim and to the University Medical Center Mannheim (Universitätsmedizin Mannheim), and collaborates closely with both national and international networks. We join forces to explore the functions and regulatory principles of different innate immune cell types, define their control by multi-layered activation modules and inhibitory checkpoints, and decipher their cross-talk with the adaptive immune system, non-immune cells and pathogens.

Our ultimate mission is to develop interdisciplinary concepts to better understand the molecular relationships governing the innate immune system in health and disease, and to exploit innate immunity towards improving immunotherapies of inflammatory and malignant diseases.


Kick-Off Retreat

MI3 will hold its opening retreat on March 5, 2020. The core and asscoiate members will convene to talk about the first interdisciplinary projects and the next milestones of the new research institute at the Medical Faculty Mannheim of Heidelberg University.

MI3 Established

On December 1, 2019, the Mannheim Institute for Innate Immunoscience was officially established. Its mission is to combine and further basic research, translational research and therapy research in the field of immunology with emphasis on innate immunity. At the start, MI3 boasts five core members and 18 associate members.
