The ReMedy Unit intends to make breakthrough discoveries that will open new lines of research and new strategies to maintain and restore health. The goal of ReMedy is to understand and to harness stress-evoked adaptability of cells at the molecular and biochemical level, in order to combat human diseases and pathologies. ReMedy aims to i) understand molecular mechanisms of stress response, ii) discover short- and long-term consequences of responses and their crosstalk in physiology and iii) apply the gained knowledge about stress responses for the development of new medical treatments. In the end we plan to have five new groups.
