Immunology

The research in immunology focuses on understanding multiple aspects of the immune system and determining the molecular and cellular mechanisms of immunopathogenesis. Work from the immunology laboratories has led to novel discoveries on basic mechanisms of innate and adaptive immune regulation and on how infectious agents communicate with and influence the host immune system. These efforts have translated to therapeutic advances directed against diseases like multiple sclerosis.
