Investigation of the innate immune response to Trichinella spiralis infection, with a focus on the molecules of the first line of defense, pattern recognition receptors. Research of the molecules, cells and mechanisms that mediate Trichinella spiralis modulation of the host immune response and are involved in the modulation of autoimmune disease.
Participant in national projects since 1992. Currently participating in two ongoing national projects: “Mechanisms of the immune response to parasitic infection, or exposure to parasite antigens, and the concomitant modulation and/or prevention of unrelated diseases” (Project No 173047, Ministry of Education and Science, Republic of Serbia, 2011-2017) and “The application of functional carbon nano-tubes and golden nano-particles in the preparation of dendritic cells for tumor therapy” (Project No 175102, Ministry of Education and Science, Republic of Serbia, 2011-2017).
Participation in the international projects: COST action BM1305 “Action to Focus and Accelerate Cell-based Tolerance-inducing Therapies (A FACTT)” (2014-2018), FP6 project “Reinforcement of the Serbian Centre for Parasitic Zoonozes” (INCO-CT-2006-043702-SERBPARZOON, 2007-2009).·
