Immunology, inflammation and vaccines

The body's immune system and inflammatory processes protect us from bacteria, viruses and other foreign substances.

In Umeå, successful and patient-centered immunological research is conducted. The basic research focuses on cellular and molecular mechanisms which contribute to immune cell activation in infection, as well as on how the immune system can cause autoimmunity. The applied research focuses on the development of drugs against viral infections and vaccine research.
