Work environment at BMC

BMC is a dynamic and international research centre. We offer good working conditions with excellent possibilities in an open, collaborative atmosphere.

1. Masterproject in molecular biology and innate immunity

A master-project is available in a research project on human lung epithelia and cell signaling linked to innate immunity and defenses against microbes. During the last decades the importance of innate immunity in lung epithelium has been partially clarified but deficiencies in the system result in repeated infections. The research group has found novel ways to stimulate innate immunity in human epithelial cell lines against infections and central signal pathways affecting the epithelial barrier. The project is for two years and funded by RANNÍS. The research laboratory is located in Læknagardur and part of BioMedical Center University of Iceland.
