Mission and vision
Supporting the system, curing the body
An unbalanced immune system is the basis for many infections, inflammatory diseases and also cancer. Due to global threats such as emerging infectious pathogens and increased antibiotic resistance, the need for new vaccination strategies and antimicrobial drugs is urgent. In addition, there is an unmet potential and need for novel innovative immune therapies and vaccination strategies to treat cancer.
Chronic inflammatory diseases have increased over the years in most developed countries and not only severely reduce quality of life but are a high burden on the health care systems. The need to focus and combine research activities in the research programs inflammatory diseases, infectious diseases and cancer immununology is crucial in order to identify common and novel immune correlates and pathways to work towards innovative treatment regimens.
The short movie below shows who we are, what we do and what our ambitions are.
