The Department of Cell Research and Immunology comprises 15 active research groups. The research performed in the Department encompasses: Immunology, Cancer, Eukaryotic Gene expression, Cell-cell interactions and differentiation, Virology and therapy, Stem cell research and developmental biology, Human Genetic diseases, Nanomedicine, and Bioinformatics. Though it is principally basic, our research has resulted in quite a number of practical and clinical applications, as well as in patents. It is funded by grants from both national and international sources.
Members of the Department teach several major undergraduate faculty courses and advanced courses. The Department enables selected undergraduate students to perform research-projects under the supervision of senior scientists, already while in their second or third year of study.
