Cellular and Molecular Immunology Vrije Universiteit Brussel
The research unit CIMM, founded by Patrick De Baetselier in 1983, initially focused on cellular immunology, mainly in the context of tumour biology. The basic themes were the analysis of immune escape mechanisms as well as the mechanisms involved in the invasive and metastatic behaviour of cancer cells. Since several common points may exist in the ways either cancer cells or parasites evade immune surveillance, cellular interactions involved ...
The Department of Microbiology and Immunology focuses on the study, prevention and treatment of important diseases caused by viruses, bacteria, fungi and parasites, the study of the complex host-microbiome interaction, and the study of the host immune system in infections, cancer, kidney diseases, autoimmunity, allergy and organ transplantation
For more information about the research topics of the different research teams belonging to ...
Experimental Immunology Institute of Tropical Medicine
In Immunology, the main focus lies on susceptibility to HIV infection (correlates of resistance to infection with emphasis on innate immunity NK cells) and on the immunology of co-infections (HIV and TB: TB-IRIS; HIV and other pathogens like Leishmania, schistosomiasis).Research lines
- The immunological cause for resistance against HIV infection.
- Immunological monitoring of HIV infection and immune ...
Immunology & Infection Hasselt University
Microbiology and Immunology, Kulak Campus Kortrijk focuses on the study, prevention and treatment of important diseases caused by viruses, bacteria, fungi and parasites, the study of the complex host-microbiome interaction, and the study of the host immune system in infections, cancer, kidney diseases, autoimmunity, allergy and organ transplantation.
In June 2016, the Laboratory of Tumor Immunology and Immunotherapy was founded at KU Leuven. In 2019 Prof An Coosemans, MD PhD, was appointed as the head of the lab. Currently, the lab counts one post-doc, six PhD students, one biostatistician and two lab technicians. The research philosophy of the lab is highly translational. By unraveling the immune biology in patients at diagnosis and during therapy/clinical trials (immune profiling), we ...
Adaptive Immunology KU Leuven
The research is focused on the cellular and molecular basis of immune tolerance mechanisms and failure. They study genetic basis of immune tolerance through the generation of murine models of disease and the analysis of genetic defects in patients with immune disorders. The laboratory specializes in the study of regulatory T cells, primary immunodeficiencies, diabetes and T cell development.
