Leaders in Immunology

The research mission of the Department of Immunology is to discover new pathways of immune system control to improve human health. We are also devoted to teaching and training young scientists and physician/scientists in the art of immunology.

Department of Immunology

Immunology is the science of the study of the immune system. The immune system has evolved to combat infections and maintain the barrier between the outside world and our bodies. However, the immune system affects nearly every organ and is involved in many diseases including asthma, atherosclerosis, rheumatoid arthritis, multiple sclerosis and inflammatory bowel disease. By harnessing the immune system we can enhance vaccination, combat cancer and control autoimmunity.
