Colton Center for Autoimmunity

The Colton Center for Autoimmunity at Yale, established by a generous gift from Judith and Stewart Colton, is dedicated to advancing innovative and translational research in autoimmune and allergic diseases.

The new center encourages cross-disciplinary, investigator-initiated research, to actively bridge gaps between research and application. It provides strategic support with the goal to advance research findings to a stage at which technology transfer to a commercial partner or start-up company is feasible.

Under the direction of Dr. Joseph Craft, the center focuses on nurturing the development of novel diagnostics, therapies, and technology to alleviate autoimmune and allergic disorders, improving lives of patients and families.
