Welcome to the Homepage of the Immunology Research Cluster (IRC) - Allergy, Inflammation & Infection

The Immunology Research Cluster (IRC) is a network of more than 80 research groups at the Medical University of Vienna with a strong research focus on Allergy, Inflammation & Infection. The overall aim of the Immunology/Allergy/Infection/Inflammation cluster is to strengthen the research environment and support in these research fields and to foster translational approaches for the benefit of the patient. In addition, IRC members are dedicated at providing excellent research and training opportunities for PhD students and postdoctoral fellows.
This homepage serves also as an entry point "into the world" of immunology, allergy, infection & inflammation research at the Medical University of Vienna. We are presenting IRC scientists, highlighting recents publications, listing news & events and describing newly funded research projects.
