The research interest of this laboratory is to understand how the immune system detects virus infections, and other types of danger, and how this leads to protective and pathological immune responses. 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 10 and 15 people at all levels from bachelor students to senior postdocs. We have a highly international laboratory with students and postdocs from more than a handful of countries.
