Prof. Dr. Michael Reth is active in the field of immunology and signalling. He is an experienced scientist with a solid grounding in his field who is well aware of the difficulty and the cumbersome nature of deciphering signals and signalling pathways. But he is also a visionary with the courage to do completely new things. The Freiburg bioss excellence cluster – the Centre of Biological Signalling Studies – is Reth’s brainchild. Karin Bundschuh from BioRegio Freiburg spoke with the scientist who works at the Max Planck Institute of Immunobiology and the Institute of Biology III at Freiburg University.
The resource centre is open to all scientists. Any scientist from anywhere in the world can contact the centre and order plasmids. Of course, there are certain rules. I am hoping that many scientists will contact us. When they receive the material they will automatically learn about our research and this will help bioss to achieve a greater international profile.
