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]

Many scientists of our Center have managed to publish their work in internationally renowned magazines.


FWF brochure (in german) presents our Center as an excellent location for immunology research, allergy research, vaccine development, development and delivery of diagnostic tests for allergic and immunological diseases, parasitic and bacterial infections, and sterilization and sanitation procedures.


At the 14th YSA PhD-Symposium of the Medical University of Vienna, held from 7 – 8 June 2018, Markus Kraller was awarded a Poster Prize.


WiSIA (Women in Science – an Interdisciplinary Association) won the Sustainability Award 2018 in the Structural Anchoring category. Since it was set up in 2009, this inter-university network has linked female researchers and promoted mutual exchange and joint projects. The association also includes several researchers from MedUni Vienna.
