Autoimmunity, Reproductive, and Transplant Immunology

The immune can turn on itself in cases of autoimmunity and notably in the context of graft vs host disease following transplantation.  Understanding the underlying molecular mechanisms of autoimmunity and rejection at the genetic, cellular and environmental levels has the potential to broadly impact human health in a wide variety of contexts. Research programs in the Progam in Immunology span the gamut of basic research on the mechanisms of immune cell migration and response during autoimmune disease to translational application in one of the world’s most active transplant programs.
