Research

Research in the Department of Immunology spans a broad range of exciting areas of contemporary immunology, including innate and adaptive immunity, host-pathogen interactions, lymphocyte development, homeostasis and function, immunological tolerance, immunological memory, auto immunity, anti-tumor immunity, and vaccine development.  

Department of Immunology investigators also study the basic underlying molecular processes, including cell signaling, transcription, recombination, and mutation. Our ability to do cutting edge research is enhanced by a rich array of state-of-the-art core facilities supported by the Duke University School of Medicine, the Duke Cancer Institute, and the Duke Human Vaccine Institute.
