The mission of the department of immunology is to discover new mechanisms and pathways of the immune system to enrich human health by combating and preventing disease, enhancing vaccination and controlling autoimmunity.
Our research focuses on understanding autoimmune arthritis and other connective tissue diseases as well as the immune response to infectious diseases.
Two different designs are used for this purpose: observational studies in humans and in vitro studies. We study infections with Dengue virus, West Nile virus, Zika virus, Human immunodeficiency virus, Epstein-barr virus and Cytomegalovirus. Studies of virus pathogenesis are conducted in close collaboration with renown virological institutes.
