PhD programs


Ph.D. students are profiled for deep orientation in the principles of basic, clinical and applied. They will be trained in he field of vaccine design including construction of vaccination antigens either wild type or chimeric based on protein, glycoprotein, or DNA/RNA; antigen modification for targeted induction of cytotoxic T cells, induction of tolerizing T cells, modification of allergen- or autoantigen-specific immune responses and induction of oral tolerance phenomenon; antigen or DNA/RNA modification for corpuscular vaccine formulation, utilizing various route of administration (systemic and mucosal) and evaluation of either systemic or mucosal immune responses in humoral and cellular arms as well as relevant intracellular signalling pathways.

The dissertation topics proposed by the Department of Immunology, Faculty of Medicine and Dentistry and University Hospital Olomouc, reflect the experimental focus of individual research groups and their collaboration with other academic and clinic departments and collaborating commercial subjects. The program benefits from cooperation conducted by the Palacky University Olomouc and Veterinary Research Institute Brno with academic institutions in USA, France, UK, Taiwan, USA, and commercial partners in the Czech Republic, UK, France, Netherland, and Germany.



Ph.D. students are profiled for orientation in the principles of basic and clinical immunology, well trained in performing various methodological approaches allowing determining the parameters of cell-mediated and humoral immunity, and the underlying genetic background of various immunologically determined states.
