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]
