Virology and Immunology

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.
