Mission | Organisation and Contact


Our mission is simple - to contribute to the elimination of immunological disorders, parasitic infections and cancer. Achieving this goal begins with cutting-edge teaching and research programs, together with seminars and international conferences in biology and medicine for students and researchers from all over the world.  We also seek to foster collaborations between our research groups and the industry so as to provide new paths to therapies and clinical approaches.
