Immunobiology research spans work on T-cells, B-cells and NK cells, as well as neuroimmunology, T-cell receptor structure and function, and vaccine development.
Historically, immunobiology has been a cornerstone of Versiti research. Initial work focused on understanding the importance of antibody/antigen recognition in successful blood transfusions. Versiti investigators played important roles in the performance of the first allogeneic bone marrow transplant and the creation of the national marrow donor program. As knowledge of the complexity of the immune system has grown, so has Versiti’s research program in this area. Our investigators work on a range of immunological questions that are helping to explain mechanisms impacting disease states.
