The construction and remarkable work of the Network since 2009 has been possible thanks to the great efforts of its partner members and the increasing number of collaborators, and especially thanks to the support of the European Regional Development Fund.
The project is structured in a virtual support center where research groups who cover practically all the areas of Immunotherapy share resources, equipment and information with universities, public administration and private initiatives. The ultimate goal of this Network is to develop and patent drugs of immunotherapeutic use for the treatment of infectious diseases, autoimmune diseases, cancer and initiate preclinical and clinical trials.
The training of new researchers is also one of the main priorities of the Network. These young researchers see enriched their education thanks to the easy access to some of the best experts in Immunotherapy in the world.
