Immunology and Transplantation Biology

The Division of Immunology and Transplantation Biology is an interdisciplinary basic science division. It was formed to develop critical mass for basic science investigation of the immune basis of childhood diseases. The members of the division have joint appointments in other clinical divisions in addition. There are no clinical activities associated with this division per se.

Immunologic diseases of childhood include infectious diseases, immune deficiency states, cancer, transplant rejection, allergy, and autoimmune diseases such as diabetes and rheumatoid arthritis. Basic science studies within this division are aimed at understanding the cellular and molecular mechanisms underlying these diseases in order to develop new diagnostic tests and therapies. Particular areas of interest within the division include antigen presentation, cytokines, and effector mechanisms.

Clinical services for the aforementioned diseases are provided by various clinical divisions including Allergy and Clinical Immunology, Endocrinology, Hematology/Oncology, Infectious Diseases, and Nephrology.
