Welcome to the Institute of Pharmacology!

The Institute of Pharmacology's mission is to explore new pharmacological approaches to combat pro-inflammatory diseases, allergies, asthma and leukemia. We study the transport of ions across cell membranes and between organelles using an innovative approach that combines cell and molecular biological methods with electrophysiological and ultrastructural techniques. When it comes to immune responses, we aim to better understand the importance and regulation of cation channels.
