The Department of Immunotechnology carries out research and higher education in research areas spanning from advanced technology developments to biomedicine. The main research areas are within oncology, allergy and antibody engineering, using advanced technologies developed in-house. These include advanced large-scale mass spectrometry, different types of microarray technologies (affinity proteomics), phage display and bioinformatics. Furthermore, the department harbours CREATE Health - a Strategic Centre for Translational Cancer Research, and the Service Centre SCIBLU, providing genomics and proteomics services to customers, e.g. other research groups at Lund University. The application of advanced technologies to solve complex biomedical challenges has taken the department to the forefront in several of the described research areas.
