Vaccine and Infectious Disease Division
Faculty interests focus on elucidating the immunobiology of infectious and malignant diseases and developing cellular and molecular strategies to manipulate innate and adaptive immunity for the treatment of human diseases. This includes research on infectious diseases that cause or are associated with developing cancer as well as infectious diseases prevalent in immunocompromised individuals, such as transplant patients. Our research expertise spans from bench to bedside and includes basic research studies as well as clinical trials. The knowledge gained in basic research studies is the key to developing new therapeutic approaches and vaccines. Investigating ways to eliminate or control infectious diseases via vaccination is a major goal.
