Cellular and Functional Immunology
Our laboratory has developed and characterized a model for chronic colitis, the socalled T cell transfer model.
The laboratory strives to understand the peptide-specific, MHC-restricted nature of T cell recognition.
The work of the group focuses on basic immunology and as well as ocular biology and immunology.
Infectious immunology is the interaction between infections and the host response towards these.
Inflammation and Cancer
Our vision is to unravel how disturbances in the immune defense lead to chronic inflammatory diseases, allergy, and cancer.
T Cell Biology
The group aims to deepen the understanding of basic mechanisms in T cell development, activation and functions.
Centre for Medical Parasitology
We study malaria parasite genes and antigens, and their role in diagnosis, immunity, pathogenesis, resistance, treatment, and vaccine development.
Costerton Biofilm Center
The Costerton Biofilm Center is a unique interdisciplinary research center established to explore chronic bacterial infections.
Our research takes its offspring in cellular mechanisms of the immune system, in particular cellular interactions.
Copenhagen Hepatitis C Programme
Our interest is in molecular mechanisms of viral infection. Antivirals and vaccines for hepatitis C virus is one of our focus areas.
