Immunology & Microbiology

At Maynooth University we are recognised for our research into the roles of the immune system in health, inflammation, microbial (especially fungal) infection and disease. 

We explore the genetics and biochemistry of disease to discover the key molecules involved in inflammatory signalling during chronic and acute conditions. 

Using mathematical and biological modelling, computational analyses of genomes, and cutting edge laboratory approaches, our teams are discovering how pathogens evolve, develop resistance and interact with the immune system.

In partnership with industry, our research aims to translate this knowledge into improved prospects for personal health and for economic development. 

Maynooth University is an ideal Host Institution for a Marie Skłodowska Curie Individual Fellowship and this cluster is interested in finding potential applicants. Find a mentor below or contact ImmuneandMicro@nuim.ie for more information.
