About Us


Message from the Division Chief

The Immunobiology program comprises a core group of faculty who collaborate with members from other departments with interests in immunology, infectious diseases, vaccine development, autoimmunity, genetic regulation of autoimmune and infectious diseases, basic mechanisms of T cell signaling of cytokine genes, and cell death (Medicine), viral immunology (Pathology), transplantation immunology (Surgery) and maternal/fetal immunology (Ob-Gyn)

We are actively engaged in the Vermont Center for Immunology and Infectious Diseases (VCIID), which is funded by a Center of Biomedical Research Excellence (COBRE) award from the NIH.

We also work with members of the Trudeau Institute in nearby Saranac Lake, New York, as well as with investigators in the Vermong Lung Center COBRE, and the COBRE programs at Dartmouth Medical School in Immunology and Lung Biology.
