Inflammatory disease and immunity

At BSMS, the research groups dedicated to inflammatory disease and immunity aim to unravel the intricate biological mechanisms that govern both the innate and adaptive immune responses in the context of overall health.

The main areas of research encompass a range of subjects, including rheumatic diseases like osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, and systemic lupus erythematosus. Other significant areas of investigation are neuroinflammation in Alzheimer's Disease and the impact of cytomegalovirus and other infections on chronic inflammatory diseases, autoimmunity, and aging.

Through extensive investigation within these key areas, our researchers strive to deepen our understanding of immune-related disorders and pave the way for potential breakthroughs in the prevention and treatment of these conditions.
