Scientific summary. Structural biology and in particularcrystallography, small angle scattering and electron microscopy applied tolarge macromolecules and their complexes. The main biological focus ison components of the innate immune system in order to discover the molecularbasis of detecting and responding to exogenous and endogenous danger signals.Both soluble proteins and membrane bound proteins are investigated. Inaddition, inhibitor development based on atomic structures is pursued with theaim of controlling both acute and chronic inflammatory conditions.
