Immunology Laboratory

Broadly, three professional activities are pursued in immunology division: designing and conducting research projects, training specialists in the field, and providing specialist lab services to the patients under close supervision of the faculties at the Center.

All the activities serve the research studies in immunology of infectious diseases, training efficient professionals in the field, and providing specialist clinical  lab services to both hospitalized and ambulatory patients. Designing and conducting research in genetic susceptibility to infections, especially brucella, kala-azar and helicobacter pylori is among research areas of interest. In addition, performing serologic tests for diagnostic purposes is pursued in immunology division. The other applied research areas include determination of anti brucella antibody titer for diagnosis in normal, and high risk groups and also anti Group A Streptococcus ASO test. It is worth mentioning that master students, PhD candidates and professional experienced staff are active under the supervision of the respective faculties.
