Epileptic Seizure Associated Immune Alterations von Johanna Tennigkeit

Every doctoral thesis needs a publication poster. This one arose from the cooperation between Johanna Tennigkeit of the Medizinische Fakultät der Ernst-Moritz-Arndt-Universität Greifswald (Greifswald Medical School) and me. I embedded the contents of her dissertation in a modern design so that it can be seen in the corridors of the clinic and the contents can be quickly captured.

Johanna Tennigkeit best describes what the dissertation is about:

“Neurological diseases that acutely disrupt brain function like stroke initiate brain inflammation and peripheral immune alterations. Epilepsy is one of the most common chronic neurological diseases. To date there is only scarce data about the consequence of epileptic seizures for central and peripheral immune responses available. The goal of this prospective cohort study is to test the hypothesis that epileptic seizures induce alterations in immune cell subpopulations.”
