• Smart antigen provision for efficient induction of allergen tolerance

Project awarded under Sonata BIS call by Polish National Sciences Centre (NCN) within Sonata BIS 9 programme

Project value: 3 824 800 PLN (ca. € 900,000).


  • Keratinocyte-derived exosomes in the induction of allergy and tolerance to environmental allergens

The project aims to elucidate the contribution of vesicle-mediated cellular communication stream between keratinocytes in the epidermis and immune cells, with relevance to allergy and skin disease. The second part aims at designing and testing vesicle-based platform to manipulate immune response.

The project is carried out within the FIRST TEAM programme of the Foundation for Polish Science co-financed by the European Union under the European Regional Development Fund.

Overall project value:  5,331,550 PLN (ca. € 1,200,000), including separate equipment grant and collaborative grant (with Prof Jonathan Heddle) and a COVID-19 grant.
