Science * Knowledge * Impact

The Laboratory of Immunobiology hosts four independent research groups, which are located at the Federal University of Santa Catarina (in the beautiful Floripa island), Department of Microbiology, Immunology and Parasitology. Our research focuses on the understanding of how the immune system responds to infectious agents. 

By modeling viral and bacterial infections in the tube or in nature, we combine a fruitful scientific atmosphere to approach the complex interactions between multicellular hosts and their co-inhabitant microorganisms during homeostasis and disease.

Also, we develop tools, vaccines and therapeutic strategies to reduce the burden of neglected diseases to humans.

We welcome all individuals, regardless of ethnicity, color, gender identity, sexual orientation or socioeconomic status, to enrich our scientific enterprise.
