BioMed X Launches a New Call for Application in Autoimmune Disease Research
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, Nov 7, 2023 - (ACN Newswire) - 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 The deadline for applying is January 7, 2023.
