Research and Teaching

Molecular Medicine is the interface between clinical research and biomedical basic research. The main objective is to understand the background and cause of diseases. The uncovered mechanisms may be used to further our knowledge and improve therapeutic regimens in the future. The teaching concept includes the research taught in graduate schools, intensive courses and the discussion of research articles. To investigate infection and immunity, our laboratory uses the following methods:


  • Flow cytometry
  • Immuno-fluorescence
  • Histology


  • Antibody assays
  • Plaque Assay
  • Chromium Release Assay


  • Western Blot
  • Immuno-precipitation
  • Kinase Assay
  • Reporter Assay

Molecular Biology

  • PCR
  • Real Time-PCR
  • Transfection
  • Transduction
  • Cell culture
