Department of Immunology
The mission of the Institute for Molecular Medicine is to contribute to the understanding,
prevention and cure of catastrophic human chronic diseases, such as cancer, autoimmune diseases,
genetic diseases, and others, through spearheading innovative basic and translational research programs.
The Department of Immunolgoy has been dedicated to research in the areas of:
For the last seven years our department has been dedicating to developing safe and effective human vaccines against Alzheimer’s
Disease and histologically different cancers.
In general, a vaccine is effective if it induces strong and potent humoral and/or cellular immunity to relevant antigen(s).
Therefore, the identification of the target immunogen(s) is very important.
At the same time, a potent vaccine requires correct formulation, including a strong and safe adjuvant capable of enhancing
immunity and directing it towards humoral or cellular responses.
