Our Research Centers

La Jolla Institute is home to three research centers that focus the efforts of collaborative groups of researchers on defined areas of inquiry, to accelerate progress toward the development of new treatments and vaccines to prevent and cure autoimmune conditions, cancer and infectious disease.

Center for Autoimmunity and Inflammation

Research into different autoimmune diseases can inform the development of new treatments that teach the immune system to tolerate the body’s own cells.

Center for Cancer Immunotherapy

The Center is at the forefront of exploring new and sometimes unexpected avenues for novel immune-based cancer treatments.

Center for Infectious Disease and Vaccine Research

Amid the COVID-19 pandemic, LJI infectious disease experts quickly mobilized a task force to respond to the current crisis.

On February 9, 2021, La Jolla Institute for Immunology’s Executive Vice President & Chief Operating Officer, Stephen Wilson, Ph.D. and immunology expert Alba Grifoni, Ph.D. of the Sette Laboratory synthesized what has been learned about COVID-19 in the past year as the SARS-CoV-2 puzzle has been untangled through significant advances in immunology research, much of which is being accomplished at the Institute. They also highlighted what laboratories are looking at next as the fight against the pandemic continues.

Visionaries

The Visionaries, an award-winning public television series hosted by Sam Waterston has recently launched its 24th season which includes a half-hour documentary film entitled, Life Without Disease.
