The Centre provides an outstanding interdisciplinary and collegiality environment to answer major questions of human health by understanding the molecular mechanisms of disease. The Centre is an internationally recognized excellent hub for research on respiratory medicine and critical care, ophthalmology, microvascular biology, basic immunology, and host-pathogen (viral and bacterial) interactions. This rich scientific environment provides unique opportunities for fast track translation of basic discoveries into human health, and to illuminate mechanisms in clinical research.
