This includes studies of the cellular and molecular mechanisms involved in immunological responses caused by e.g. chemicals and their mixtures, for example in skin sensitization. Tasks include cell culture of primary cells and cell lines, various cell-based assays, and analyses of RNA and protein expression. Thus, cell culture and cell analysis with the help of various (immunological) methods, will be important parts of the project. The assignments may also include supervision of students, and there may be participation in the department's undergraduate courses.
