Welcome to the Paludan lab

Research goal

Our research interest is to understand how the immune system detects viral infections, and how this leads to protective and pathological immune responses. We have a particular interest in viral infections in the nervous system, and the processes related to defense and disease in the brain. We aim to provide new basic knowledge on how the immune system works and interacts with viruses, and how this impacts on the pathogenesis of viral infections. Such work may lead to better understanding of viral diseases and could have implications for future development of improved vaccines, antiviral therapeutics, and diagnostic tools.

The laboratory is composed of between 15 and 20 people at all educational levels and career stages. We have a highly international laboratory with students and postdocs from a wide range of countries.
