Underneath our skin, battles are fought and won all the time. At the molecular level, organism and pathogens are locked in an evolutionary arms race that has resulted in an intricately complex and effective immune system. Using modern molecular techniques, we are unraveling the workings of this system down to the smallest levels. To enable us to use the power of the immune system in health and disease and to design interventions that help identify and overcome novel infections such as COVID-19 and other threats.
The Utrecht immunology research community is organized in the molecular immunology hub.
