The innate immune system dynamically responds to infecting pathogens by initiation of protective host responses and by a rapid termination of these responses once the infection agent is no longer present. Inefficient or uncontrolled responses may result in infectious or inflammatory diseases. We investigate both the basic principles of balanced innate immune responses as well as aspects relevant for immune disorders. The molecular mechanisms that allow a robust yet temporally
