2.      Research

The primary research focus of our unit lies in the field of immunology, with a dedicated effort towards enhancing disease management and preventing autoimmune disorders. Our team is particularly interested in the study of autoimmune diseases such as multiple sclerosis (MS), Type 1 Diabetes Mellitus (T1DM), and coeliac disease. Additionally, we are involved in the development of mRNA vaccines. In our pursuit of scientific excellence, we actively collaborate with local universities and hospitals to further our research and contribute to the broader scientific community.
