Our immunology researchers focus on diseases of immune regulation. It examines the origins and progression of autoimmune disease by undertaking genetic studies, clinical and pathological observations, and the development of and in depth analysis of animal models of disease. In so doing, researchers share the common aim of working to develop novel immunotherapies. Clinical trials into diseases such as rheumatoid arthritis, spondyloarthropathies,and Type 1 diabetes are testing novel therapeutics, novel uses of existing therapies, and the development of novel assays to help predict disease severity and progression.
