Department of Genetics, Cell- and Immunobiology
Three major and some minor groups represent the scientific research in the Department of GCI. The dominant fields are: inflammation immunology, clinical genomics and chemotaxis. For details, see the attached link.
The scientific activity is financed chiefly by domestic and international (e.g. EU) grants.
The major instrumentation includes Agilent/Kromat microarray (chip) scanner and system (University core facility), laser confocal microscopy (BioRad), flow cytometer and cell sorter system (Beckton-Dickinson), ABI Prism QPCR (Applied Biosystems), scanning electron microscopy (Hitachi) and gel documentation systems. We run a transgenic core animal facility, as well.
The teaching activity of the Department of GCI is multiple, too. In gradual education we teach Immunology, genetics/genomics and bioinformatics for medical, pharmacologist and dentist students in Hungarian, English and German languages. The special courses are: histamine biology, advanced molecular genetics, sex genetics, advanced genomics, chemotaxis etc. These lectures are available for undergraduate and graduate students in three languages, too.
Our diagnostic activity includes immunophenotyping analysis for various clinics of Semmelweis University and other institutions.
