About the Division

The Immunology division is a basic science part of the Medical Microbiology and Immunology Department. It engages in teaching and conduct research on the development and function of the immune system. Understanding the immune system’s role in defense against infection and cancer and in autoimmune disease is the basis for new therapies for many diseases. The department provides a dynamic research environment for immunological discovery and a superb training environment for the next generation of biomedical scientists.

Our mission is to advance our understanding of the function of the immune system in order to enhance our ability to fight infectious disease, cancer and autoimmunity. Basic research of all aspects of immunology is critical to this mission, and translational research is important to link our findings to the development of new therapies.
