The Immunobiology Program

Researchers in the Immunobiology Program are working to unravel the molecular mechanisms of the human immune system. In a range of projects, scientists are exploring the role of the microbiome in anti-cancer immune responses, working to understand the circuitry in immune cells that allows them to sense pathogens and cancerous cells to mount a response without harming the host, and trying to uncover how a dysregulation of signaling in immune cells can convert the cells into cancers such as lymphoma.
