The LKS Faculty of Medicine of the University of Hong Kong (HKUMed) and the Institut Pasteur are combining their considerable expertise to establish the Centre for Immunology & Infection (C2I), a major initiative that adopts innovative strategies to identify and contain emerging infectious diseases, and transform Hong Kong and the Greater Bay Area into a global hub of knowledge and research in this field.
The C2I aims to characterise immune responses to infectious agents and their components in a healthy Asian population and develop new vaccine platforms for influenza, new strategies for mosquito-borne viruses and new treatments for lethal respiratory virus infections.
The Centre is led by Professor Malik Peiris (Managing Director) and Professor Roberto Bruzzone (Co-director). A number of research programmes are developed under the centre to achieve the above objectives:
C2I is always actively looking for talented individuals to join our growing team. Please check back from time to time to see what we have available that would be the right fit for you.
