Research in immunology at the Department of Immunology and Microbiology is performed by the seven research groups in the Section of Immunology.
The expertise of the groups is focused on basic research into the molecular mechanisms important for the recognition of virus, bacteria and tumour antigens, and the regulation of the immune response. Our research is concentrated on increasing the understanding of immune systems, which is of global significance in combating cancers, epidemics and autoimmune diseases.
It is the intention of the Section of Immunology to deliver research and training at the highest international level. This is done through widespread multinational collaboration with leading research institutions from all over the world and by offering undergraduate and postgraduate training to students within immunology, to meet the growing demands from industry and need for scientists with immunology training.
The research groups that make up the Section of Immunology are located at the Panum Institute.
Through the menu on the left you can find more information about the research and researchers in the individual groups.
