12 research centers will create technologies to strengthen Immunity


12 research centers of the Russian Federation have created a consortium to implement a large-scale project Programming Immunity for Therapy and Healthy Longevity, and Tomsk State University is among them. The participants will research immunity issues to program immunity to work correctly, prevent serious pathologies, improve the quality of life of patients who have recovered from a serious illness, and assure the healthy longevity of humanity.

These urgent issues brought about the creation of the new interdisciplinary consortium. It is known that the basis of every disease is a fault in the workings of the immune system. That is why the main objective of the consortium will be the relation between immune system disorders and heart problems and cancer, as well as various factors affecting the immune system during viral pathologies.

The scientific coordinator is Prof. Dr. Julia Kzhyshkowska, head of the TSU Laboratory of Translational Cellular and Molecular Biomedicine and head of Department of Innate Immunity and Tolerance, Institute of Transfusion Medicine and Immunology at the University of Heidelberg (Germany).
