OVERVIEW

Immunology

As a complex network of cells and proteins throughout the body, the immune system helps our body to defend itself against infections.

In some cases, the immune system can be over-active, resulting in an excessive immune response against substances in the environment (such as with allergic reactions) or a response to normal components of the body (such as in autoimmune diseases). 

Researchers at TRI are studying the processes behind immunological disorders such as autoimmune disorders and bone and joint disorders, and ways we can train the immune system to target cancer cells via immunotherapies.
