Immunity & Inflammation

Τhe mission of the Immunity and Inflammation Program is to advance knowledge on complex immunological diseases such as rheumatoid arthritis, inflammatory bowel disease, pulmonary diseases, multiple sclerosis and cancer using a variety of approaches including transgenesis, biochemistry, imaging, computational modelling and systems-level profiling. Researchers at the Program focus on the development of animal models to dissect the molecular and cellular mechanisms that underlie disease pathogenesis, aiming at the establishment of innovative translational platforms for the discovery and validation of novel therapeutics and biomarkers.

Current member researchers of the Program:

G. Kollias - Molecular and cellular mechanisms of chronic inflammation and cancer
V. Aidinis - Molecular pathophysiology of pulmonary inflammation, fibrosis and cancer
M. Armaka -
E. Douni - Mouse Functional Genetics for bone, immune and neurological diseases
V. Koliaraki - Origin, plasticity and function of the intestinal microenvironment in health and disease
D. Kontoyiannis - Post-transcriptional modules of gene expression in physiology and disease
A. Matralis - Development of bioactive molecules against complex human diseases
M. Tsoumakidou - Tumor immunology and immunotherapy
M. Verykokakis - Development and function of innate T lymphocytes
