Vinod Kumar Magadi Gopalaiah assistant professor

Vinod Kumar completed his PhD in Hannover Medical School, Germany in the field of host-pathogen interactions. In his postdoctoral research at Tokyo University, Japan, he studied genetic susceptibility variants for infections-induced cancers and their therapeutic implications. He then moved to department of genetics, UMC Groningen where he focused on integrating host genetics with immune responses to understand the mechanisms of infections. Currently, Vinod Kumar holds Hypatia fellowship to conduct research with his team on identifying the human genes and molecular mechanisms that regulate appropriate immune response to infections, and which may contribute to susceptibility to fungal sepsis and other infectious diseases.

Field of study

Internal Medicine

Radboud Institute for Molecular Life Sciences

Our main aim is to achieve a greater understanding of the molecular mechanisms of disease. By integrating fundamental and clinical research, we obtain multifaceted knowledge of (patho)physiological processes. read more
