Our focus is immunology, because we believe that no other biomedical discipline has greater implications for human health than immunology. By unraveling the complexities of the immune system, LJI researchers are directly tackling an extraordinarily diverse array of diseases, which together account for more than two-thirds of all deaths in the U.S. each year. Such diseases include type 1 and type 2 diabetes, cancer, rheumatoid arthritis, multiple sclerosis, asthma, allergies, influenza, dengue fever and many other illnesses.
