Our mission is to advance the field of immunology by connecting scientists and physicians across disciplines to perform cutting-edge research to positively impact patient care.
Therapy & Trials
Immunology Research Roundtable
Immunology Research Roundtables run from September to May. Each session is a one hour presentation with the following hour reserved for a Q&A and meet-and-greet to share science and collaborate.
The Center for Immunology provides support for innovative early stage basic and translational research in Immunology and related science.
Congratulations to this year’s Pilot Grant awardees:
- Weiguo Cui, PhD - “BATF regulated Treg activation, differentiation and lineage stability”
- Matthew Hodges, PhD - "BATF regulated Treg activation, differentiation and lineage stability
We are pleased to announce for our members four funding opportunities:
The Center is seeking to support an investigator who submitted an immunology-focused NIH R01, or comparable national foundation application, and received a competitive score but was not funded. Those who need the additional financial resources to address the evaluation and resubmit the proposal are eligible to apply. Please see flyer for additional details.
Exploratory Seed Grant
The Center is pleased to announce an Exploratory Seed Grant to help our members to obtain preliminary data that informs new research directions or that builds upon a new multidisciplinary collaboration. Please see flyer for additional details.
Research Training Award
The Center is seeking to support predoctoral, postdoctoral fellow, or faculty investigators looking to complete advanced training in immunology. Please see flyer for additional details.
The Center is seeking to support a new program of Travel Grants for predoctoral, postdoctoral, or faculty investigators presenting immunology-focused research at an international, national, or regional meeting. Please see flyer for additional details.
Interest groups are new multidisciplinary working groups of clinicians and scientists coming together over shared immunological research.
Immunotherapy Interest Group
The Center for Immunology has formed an Immunotherapy interest group to discuss issues with current clinical trials, possibilities for new trials best utilization of resources and clinical specimens for research purposes.
Medical Student Interest Group
Students participating in the Center for Immunology’s Student Interest Group are working to influence immunology education and research across campus.
