Haint ac Imiwnedd

The Institute of Infection and Immunity is one Centre within the School of Medicine where students can conduct their research. Full details of all the research areas available can be found through the Medicine (PhD/MPhil/MD) programme.

The Institute of Infection and Immunity conducts internationally recognised research in the areas of infection, immunity and inflammation. The long-term objective of this research is to develop or redefine treatment strategies for use in inflammatory disorders, infectious diseases and cancer. Further details can be found here.

The Institute is comprised of a team of 40 principal investigators from different fields of expertise. Our researchers include laboratory scientists, clinical academics and hospital doctors, who share knowledge through regular seminars and workshops. Our Institute includes 12 professors, and we are currently training 60 PhD students.

Programme Aims

To offer a broad knowledge and expertise in in all aspects of immunological-based disease processes at the molecular and cellular level, with strengths in innate immunity, cancer immunology, T-cell biology and viral and bacterial infection. Centrally supported state of-the-art technology platforms, genomics, Medicine courses continue over proteomics, lipidomics, imaging and flow cytometry with expertise in cell and molecular biology.

Nodweddion unigryw

New and refurbished lab space in the Henry Wellcome and Tenovus Buildings combines state-of-the-art laboratories with shared core facilities for proteomics, genomics, transgenics, flow cytometry, histology and imaging.
