Germany

The Technical University of Munich (TUM) is one of Europe’s leading universities in research and teaching. As the Entrepreneurial University, it doesn’t just want to understand the world – it wants to improve it. That is why the entire university revolves around one core goal: innovation.

Interdisciplinary solutions to future challenges

TUM’s unparalleled range of disciplines covers engineering and natural sciences, life sciences and medicine, management and social sciences – a combination found nowhere else in Europe. TUM leverages this enormous potential by intensively and intelligently combining the different subjects. This inspires modern fields of research extending from bioengineering to machine intelligence. At the same time, TUM links technological change more closely with social, political and ethical issues than other technical university.

Awakening the entrepreneurial spirit

No other German university produces more start-up founders – the result of a support infrastructure unrivalled in Europe. TUM also builds long-term research partnerships with the most innovative global players. More and more companies are establishing roots directly on campus.

A global university

TUM is an international university with a high proportion of foreign students and researchers as well as more than 150 partner universities around the globe. With the founding of TUM Asia in 2012 in Singapore, it became the first German university to establish an overseas campus. TUM also has offices in Brussels, Cairo, Mumbai, Beijing, San Francisco, and São Paulo.

Tired T cells? Blame TOX

During cancer and certain viral infections, disease-fighting immune cells progressively enter a dysfunctional, ‘exhausted’ state — and a newly discovered regulatory protein helps explain why.

A team co-led by researchers from the Technical University of Munich showed in mice and humans that chronic exposure to viruses elevated levels of a protein called TOX and led to the maintenance of T cells with a reduced ability to fight disease.

Eliminating the part of TOX needed for DNA binding helped keep T cells in an active state for longer, but the T cells ultimately became overstimulated and died off. TOX thus serves a dual role: promoting T cell exhaustion and maintaining large numbers of functional T cells.

Targeting TOX with drugs could help improve the durability of immunotherapies for cancer and infectious diseases — but, the authors caution, any modulation of TOX activity must be carefully fine-tuned to ensure the long-term survival of T cells.
