The department performs cross-disciplinary research within the field of immunotechnology, focusing on the cells and molecules of the immune system for various biomedical applications. Applied research as well as projects addressing fundamental issues are being pursued within six main project areas; (i) Antibody technology, (ii) Affinity Proteomics, (iii) Proteomics, (iv) Bioinformatics, (v) Cancer, and (vi) Allergy. Within these efforts, we continuously accept master thesis students and project workers for training. You will then be allowed to participate in a cutting edge project providing excellent opportunities for training and taking part of the latest technologies and applications.
We currently offer the possibility to perform projects within the following main project areas;
- Dendritic cells and Allergic diseases
- Recombinant antibodies – technologies and applications
- Proteomics – technologies and applications
- Biomarker discovery
- Cancer – B cell lymphoma
To assess the diversity of projects assignments you can view a list of recent MSc thesis and Advance course projects in Immunotechnology here.
