Virology and immunology

at The Department of Biomedicine

The studies investigate how the virus is detected and controlled by the infected cell immune system and how processes such as cell division and cell death are affected by infections. We study what the relationship between virus and host means for the development and progress of a number of diseases, including various types of cancer and rheumatic diseases.

Virus host interactions and multiple sclerosis

Studies of how human herpes virus infects and affects the host cell, and research in Epstein-Barr virus and human herpes virus as being the cause factor in the development of multiple sclerosis.


Virus and the innate immune system

Research in how the individual cell detects and responds to viral infection.

Virus and sclerosis

Research in particular virus and whether the reactions of our immune defense could be one of the causes of the neurological disease of multiple sclerosis.


Cancer immunology

Research in the interaction between the immune system and cancer.

Innate immunology

Research in the innate part of the immune system.

Autoimmune disorders

Research in diseases that are caused by its own immune defence.


Biophysical immunology

Research in the correlation between the structure of biological macromolecules and their function in relation to the body's immune system.
