Organisation profile

The Department of Infection (DII) and Immunity defines itself as a clinical-translational research center at the crossroads of basic discovery, clinical application, and public health service. 

As such, the major focus of DII is on the analysis of complex mechanisms of infectious and inflammatory disease processes. With a multi-disciplinary approach, the research strategy is based on the following elements: experimental discovery, bridging to clinical application and technology development. Major unsolved medical questions in the areas of inflammation (allergy, asthma, autoimmunity), cancer and infectious diseases (HIV) drive DII’s current and future research agenda. The long-term objective of the DII is to develop into a center of complex immune system analysis in order to provide a better understanding of immune-mediated disease pathologies and infectious diseases
