Infection, Immunology & Inflammation Domain


Infection, Immunology and Inflammation spans research from basic molecular mechanisms of immunity to therapeutic intervention for the benefit of children and adults suffering from chronic and acute diseases that cause  major morbidity and mortality.  Research is both clinically and experimentally based to unravel mechanisms of the immune system in health and to understand the pathogenesis of each disease process. There is a strong ethos of collaboration across the domain; our aim being to achieve the highest quality research, provide the highest quality education and to address the most pressing problems in this interdisciplinary field.
