PCMM | Areas of Research

Focusing our expertise with great energy on six areas of research

We are world leader in immunology research, specifically concerning immune defense and inflammation.

Our approach to its research is very broad, including expertise from the sub-molecular level to that of the whole organism. We are powerfully equipped to tackle the bases of immune deficiency, autoimmunity, inflammatory disease--including atherosclerosis and other afflictions of the cardiovascular system--and malfunctions of the immune system such as involved in AIDS and types of cancer. Powerful imaging capabilities, as well as other core facilities, buttress the work of our investigators.

Our potential for future contributions to basic biomedical knowledge and the application of those breakthroughs to medical treatment is extraordinary.
