Infectious and Molecular Biology and Immunology Research Team varies out research in determining the role of microRNA molecules in the course of infectious and environmental diseases. The objective of the research is, among other things, to evaluate immunological processes occurring in pathological conditions in mammals and to use in silico analyses to identify phenomena occurring at the molecular level in RNA and DNA viruses.

Infectious and Neoplastic Diseases Experimental Immunology and Immunobiology Research Team carries out its research concerning immunological phenomena relevant to the course of viral infections, such as Lagovirus europaeus. The objective of the research is, among other things, to assess the correlation of immune system reactions to the development of cancer, mainly mediated by viral infections (EBV, HPV) and the role of selected immunological indicators (including TLR, CD200, PD-1, PD-L1) as markers of infection.
