BioMed X Launches a New Call for Application in Autoimmune Disease Research

The BioMed X Institute 3 mins read

A new research team at the BioMed X Institute will develop a novel strategy to selectively target autoreactive plasma cells in autoimmune disease.

HEIDELBERG, GERMANY / ACCESSWIRE / November 7, 2023 / BioMed X, an independent biomedical research institute, announced yesterday the launch of a Call for Application in immunology. This call aims to assemble a new research team to develop innovative strategies for neutralizing autoreactive plasma cells in the context of autoimmune disease.

Current therapeutic strategies for autoimmune diseases primarily focus on broadly suppressing the immune response, with significant side effects. More importantly, none of these treatments address one of the root causes of the disease, the autoreactive plasma cells that produce antibodies targeting self-antigens. By exploring the deep biology of human autoreactive plasma cells to identify biomarkers that distinguish them from their physiological counterparts, this project aims to identify new therapeutic strategies to selectively eliminate these cells in patients suffering from autoimmune diseases.

"Immunology - including autoimmunity - is one of our R&D focus areas at our BioMed X Institutes in Heidelberg, New Haven, and our XSeed Labs in Ridgefield. Currently, we are hosting five immunology research teams at different stages of development. We are excited to extend our immunology research capabilities with this new project in the field of autoreactive plasma cells," explains Christian Tidona, Founder and Managing Director of the BioMed X Institute.

This new research group will be located at the BioMed X Institute in Heidelberg, Germany. Each BioMed X project is a collaboration with a leading pharmaceutical company. To learn more about this project and how to apply, visit the BioMed X Career Space at https://career.bio.mx/call/2023-BMX-C02. The deadline for applying is January 7, 2023.

Bionic eye trial reveals substantial vision improvements over two and a half years

Results of the first clinical trial of Australia’s ‘second generation’ bionic eye have demonstrated ‘substantial improvement’ in four participants’ functional vision, daily activities and quality of life over a period of more than two and a half years. Detailed outcomes from the trial, led by the Centre for Eye Research Australia, Bionics Institute, University of Melbourne and Royal Victorian Eye and Ear Hospital, are published in Ophthalmology Science. The findings add to interim results which showed that the second-generation bionic eye developed by Australian company Bionic Vision Technologies provided rapid improvements for four patients with blindness caused the genetic eye…
