“The Center for Innate Immunity and Immune Disease”

The Center for Innate Immunity and Immune Disease (CIIID) a is new focus center to serve the UW School of Medicine and the Seattle research community. The Center serves to link multiple biomedical disciplines for research, training, and program development. Our focus within the growing field of innate immunity aims to support collaboration for the advancement and translation of basic concepts in immune regulation and immunologic disease into clinical applications for improving human health. This presentation will preview the Center’s structure, research focus, service cores, educational programs’, and membership opportunities.
