Immunology Research

As the study of the immune system in both health and disease, immunology research covers a wide range of topics. While there are on-going efforts to understand intracellular immunity mechanisms and effector mechanisms of the immune system, a significant number of researchers are focused on the study and role of the immune system in disease. Researchers in these areas study diseases interrelated by cellular, molecular, and genetic regulatory mechanisms that dictate the associated immune response, such as cancer, infections, chronic inflammation, autoimmune diseases, allergies, and tissue transplantation.
