Mission Statement

Center for Pathophysiology, Infectiology and Immunology

A number of research initiatives and scientific achievements of the » Medical University of Vienna originate from the research area immunology/allergology/infectiology. To strengthen this successful research field further, the University defined in its development plan 2009 immunology/allergology/infectiology as one of its 4 main research clusters. As organizational measure, the University founded the Center for Pathophysiology, Infectiology and Immunology (CePII) that concentrates most of the research laboratories of the preclinical school working in pathophysiology, infectiology and immunology. Within the Center the research laboratories are substructured in 4 institutes to use more efficiently the resources and to better plan common activities:

» Institute for Hygiene and Applied Immunology [HAI]
» Institute of Immunology [IFI]
» Institute for Pathophysiology and Allergy Research [IPA]
» Institute for Specific Prophylaxis and Tropical Medicine [ISPTM]

Students meet pupils (10th of July, 2017)

 
 

As part of a recent study conducted by Anna-Margarita Schötta from the Institute for Hygiene and Applied Immunology and Center for Pathophysiology, Infectiology and Immunology of MedUni Vienna, an inventory has been made of the various pathogens carried by ticks in all parts of Austria.

 
 

In Austria alone, two or three people a day die as a result of passive smoking, for pets the numbers are obscure. Acrolein, a compound in side stream smoke, was identified for the first time by Franziska Roth-Walter (IPA) et al. as one of the main causes of failure of the immune defence to tumours due to passive smoking: It stimulates T-regulatory cells via the Arylhydrocarbon-Receptor.

 
 

We are happy that our special issue on the higher risk of females to develop allergies and athma is exactly published to this date in „Allergologie“ (in German).
