Introduction of Immunology and Microbiology:
Immunology and Microbiology research are fundamental to our understanding of the intricate world of microorganisms and the immune system’s response to them.
Investigating treatments that harness the immune system’s power to fight cancer and autoimmune diseases, including checkpoint inhibitors and CAR-T cell therapies.
Infectious Disease Immunology:
Studying the immune responses to pathogens such as viruses, bacteria, and parasites, with a focus on vaccine development and antimicrobial strategies.
Examining the genetic factors influencing immune system function and susceptibility to diseases.
Studying the interactions between microorganisms and their environments, including the roles of microbes in ecosystems and nutrient cycling.
Examining the genetic makeup and mechanisms of microorganisms, including gene regulation, horizontal gene transfer, and antibiotic resistance.
Investigating the structure, replication, and pathogenicity of viruses, as well as the development of antiviral therapies and vaccines.
