The Department of Immunobiology at a glance


The Department of Immunobiology (formerly Department of Biochemistry) performs cutting edge research on fundamental immunological processes, including the discovery of pathways that govern innate and adaptive immune responses, sterile and pathogen-driven inflammatory processes, cell death pathways and mechanisms of membrane fission and fusion.
The Department is located on the Epalinges campus of the University of Lausanne which is part of the the Centre of Immunity and Infection (CIIL) community and our researchers benefit from access to cutting edge technology platforms,  seminars from leading national and international researchers and close collaborations with the Biopôle.
The Department of Immunobiology is committed to excellence in teaching and is involved in teaching at the Bachelors level, at the Masters level (Masters in Medical Biology) and at the PhD level with the PhD programme in Cancer and Immunology.
