Veterinary immunology

Veterinary immunology is the cornerstone of animal health and welfare, food security, and public health. Within the Cell Biology and Immunology group we study the function of immune cells in livestock and companion animals. A thorough understanding of these fundamental immune processes forms the basis for the development of novel immune mediated strategies to improve animal health and welfare. These strategies include modern vaccine approaches, including Virus Like Particles and mRNA vaccines, immune therapies to cure immune related diseases, and modulation of the immune system in young animals via feed interventions or in ovo vaccination.
