The Immune System: At the Core of All Health And Disease
At the La Jolla Institute for Allergy and Immunology, our team of renowned scientists is working tirelessly to unlock the secrets of the immune system, which hold the key to many of society's most debilitating illnesses. Over the past 25 years, medical research has shown that the immune system is critically involved in diseases that affect nearly every organ of the body. We now realize that harnessing its power holds great promise for new therapies and the ultimate goal: to experience Life Without Disease.
New approaches that engage or control the immune system will treat a spectrum of diseases including cancer, heart disease, diabetes, AIDS, Crohn’s, rheumatoid arthritis, and even Alzheimer’s. Mastering the natural power of the immune system represents the greatest single disease-fighting strategy that biomedical science has to offer.
Since it’s founding in 1988 as an independent nonprofit research institute, La Jolla Institute has emerged as a world leader in immunology research. We are the only San Diego research institute focused solely on solving immune system diseases and one of the only dedicated immune system research institutes in the world.
