Centre of Excellence in Molecular Systems Immunology and Physiology Research Group, SyMMys
Organisational unit: Research area
The overall objective of the CoE is to understand the molecular mechanisms that control the immune system as well as the interactions between the immune system and other physiological systems in health and disease. This information may help in prevention and treatment of inflammatory and immune-mediated disorders. The CoE will focus especially on type 1 diabetes. Along the way, the research will generate new knowledge of the role of metabolism in early stages of autoimmune diseases as well as reveal novel molecular mechanisms.
The Centre of Excellence (CoE) is directed by Professor Mikael Knip from the University of Helsinki. Professor Harri Lähdesmäki from the Aalto University School of Science is leading the research group in the CoE.
