Research Units

A Research Unit (FOR) comprises several researchers who collaborate in a specific medium-range project which, in terms of its thematic, temporal and financial scope, extends beyond the funding options available under the Individual Grants Programme or the Priority Programme of the German Research Foundation (DFG). The following Research Units are currently based at the University of Cologne:

FOR 2150: Relativity in Social Cognition: Antecedents and Consequences of Comparative Thinking

FOR 2240: (Lymph)Angiogenesis And Cellular Immunity In Inflammatory Diseases Of The Eye

FOR 2722: Neue molekulare Determinanten der Homöostase der muskuloskeletalen extrazellulären Matrix - ein systematischer Ansatz

KFOR 219 Basal Ganglia - Cortex Loops: Mechanisms of Pathological Interactions and Their Therapeutic Modulation

KFO 286: Exploiting defects in the DNA damage response for the treatment of chronic lymphocytic leukemia

KFO 329: Molekulare Mechanismen von Podozyten-Erkrankungen – die Nephrologie auf dem Weg zur Präzisionsmedizin
