After receiving his PhD from the University in Cologne, Steffen Jung moved for postdoctoral training to the Hebrew University, Israel (1993), and the Skirball Institute for Molecular Pathogenesis, NYU (1997), where he developed tools to study mononuclear phagocytes in their in vivo context. In 2002 Steffen Jung joined the Weizmann Institute of Science, Rehovot, Israel, where he is tenured since 2009. The Jung laboratory investigates the biology of monocytes, DC and macrophages, their development, as well as functions in health and disease. Current special focus is given to intestinal macrophages, microglia, and molecular mechanisms that establish distinct cell identities.
