Molecular Immunology

Molecular Immunology

Productive immune responses using confocal microscopy
The Molecular Immunology division aims to understand how the immune system functions to protect us from pathogens, such as bacteria and viruses, while at the same time ignoring the harmless or beneficial microbes in our environment.
By understanding the normal immune response, we aim to pinpoint the events that go awry in diseases such as lymphoma, autoimmunity or chronic infections.
