InterACt, a Leibniz ScienceCampus, is a strategic initiative. As an interdisciplinary infection research network on the topic of 'Integrative Analysis of pathogen-induced Compartments', the ScienceCampus links existing research groups in the fields of infection research, structural and systems biology with in situ imaging and bioinformatics methods. The Leibniz ScienceCampus InterACt has state-of-the-art imaging techniques at its disposal. The resulting complex datasets are supplemented with data from complementary methods and integratively merged. The novel insights gained into pathogen compartments will ultimately help enable the discovery of innovative therapeutic approaches. InterACt creates new structures and expertise for the integrative analysis of complex data sets in the long term.
