Research associates

  • Attila Bácsi, PhD, Professor is the Head of the Department of Immunology.

    • has experience in both in vitro and in vivo systems to study the effects of reactive oxygen species (ROS) on the functional activities of DC and epithelial cells, and to investigate the molecular mechanisms of inflammation.

  • Tamás Bíró, PhD, DSc, Professor
  • Éva Rajnavölgyi, PhD, DSc, Professor (retired)
    • has developed sounded advances in human DC differentiation and function authoring publications in peer-reviewed journals. She also played an instrumental role in the establishment of the Cell Therapy Unit at the Clinical Centre for establishing a DC-based Phase I clinical trial in colorectal carcinoma patients.

  • Árpád Lányi, PhD, Associate Professor is the Deputy Head of the Department of Immunology
    • His main interest is to understand the role of SLAM family of co-receptor molecules in the communication between dendritic cells and T-cells and how this communication affects the differentiation of naive T-cells into effector cells. Recently he has become interested int he immunological aspects of tumors with the tumor-associated stroma. These projects use a combination of in vitro systems using  DC gene transfer, gene silencing followed by analysis of DC functions and tumor models utilizing full KO or tissue- specific KO models.

    • Péter Gogolák, PhD, Research Fellow
      • has expertise in  the phenotypic and functional characterization of DC and T-lymphocyte subsets by a versatile methodological repertoire that involve flow cytometry, cytokine/protein multiplex bead assays and separation of rare cell populations by cell sorting.
      • MTMT link
    • Gábor Koncz, PhD, Associate Professor
      • his focus of research has been the study of apoptotoic and non-apoptotic cell death pathways and cytotoxic functions in the immune system, signal transduction of different survival and death receptors.
      • MTMT link
    • Kitti Linda Pázmándi, PhD, Research Fellow
      • is studying the possible effects of oxidative microenviroment and „damage-associated molecular patterns” (DAMPs) generated by inflammatory reactions on the functional properties of human DCs, preferentially on human plasmacytoid DC.
      • MTMT link
    • Tünde Fekete, PhD, Assistant Lecturer
      • is specialized in the antiviral and inflammatory responses of different conventional DC subtypes with particular interest in the signaling pathways regulated by the mammalian target of rapamycin (mTOR).
      • MTMT link
    • Johanna Mihály, PhD, Assistant Professor
      • Her main research interest is the assessment of the potencial anti-inflammatory effects of phytocannbinoids and semi-synthetic fluorinated phytocannabinoids in in vitro pro-inflammatory keratinocyte model systems.
