The Department of Immunology maintains research programs that focus on translational and basic research in areas relevant to human disease. The strength of the department lies with an integrated faculty interested in understanding how immunological, physiological and metabolic pathways interact to produce dysregulated, innate and adaptive host responses in a wide array of chronic diseases. These include autoimmunity, cardiovascular disease, transplantation, infectious diseases, cancer, obesity and diabetes. Our goal is to become a world-class center for the study of inflammation and the targeted development of novel therapeutics for both treatment and prevention of immune-mediated diseases.
