Laboratory of Immunoregulation

"We are looking for collaboration with academic partners as well as public and private organisations in the fields of regulation of immune response and regenerative medicine."


Offer

- Expertise within a diverse range of issues related to molecular and cellular immunology

- Experience with animal models and cell transplantation

- Analysis of the impact of specific drugs or new materials on immune system

- Highly qualified, skilful, intelligent and enthusiastic blondes


Know-how & Technologies

The aim of our research is to characterise the molecular and cellular mechanisms of specific immunity which can be consequently applied in targeted immunoregulation for both the experimental work and the clinical practice.


- Skin and corneal transplantation in laboratory animals and in vivo immunoregulation

- Study of cooperation among cells of the immune system in tissue cultures

- Regulation of gene expression, characterization of the functions of signalling molecules

- Study of stem cells and their use in regenerative medicine


Content of Research

- Study of cellular and molecular mechanisms specific to transplantation immunity

- The specific modulation of immune responses with the aim of applying apply acquired knowledge in clinical practice

- The use of nanofi ber scaffolds as cell or drug carriers in in vitro or in vivo experimental systems

- Investigation of the therapeutic effect of mesenchymal stem cells in experimental mouse models; study of interaction of mesenchymal stem cells with specific drugs


Main Capabilities
