next generation challenges
Inflammation is a protective response of the immune system to extreme challenges to homeostasis, such as infection, tissue stress
Our understanding of these processes has increasingly benefited from the significant advancement of multiple high-throughput technologies (“Omics”) in the recent years. However, as a result of this development, immunological research is facing new challenges.
In the “Omics” era of Life Sciences, we are confronted with
As such, the combination of information science and hypothesis-driven research is the most promising approach that will culminate in the development of innovative solutions.
PhD training and research environment
NextImmune will host research groups with strong critical mass in systems immunology/biomedicine, computational biology, inflammation /infection and basic/molecular immunology/allergology from the Department of Infection and Immunity (DII) of the Luxembourg Institute of Health (LIH) and the Luxembourg Centre of Systems Biomedicine (LCSB) as well as the Life Science Research Unit (LSRU) of the University of Luxembourg (UL), an overall structure which will serve as a catalyst for the development of novel diagnostic and therapeutic approaches for severe human immune-mediated diseases. Once accepted into the NextImmune programme, the
NextImmune is funded over a period of 6.5 years by the Luxembourg National Research Fund (FNR) through the competitive PRIDE program and, in addition, through intramural funds from the Luxembourg Ministry of Higher Education and Research (MESR).
