The research in Yale Immunobiology focuses on the molecular, cellular and genetic underpinnings of immune system function and development, on host-pathogen interactions, and on the development of new treatments for human disease, particularly those related to immune dysfunction 


The period of training following the Ph.D. is an essential part of a scientist’s career and the Department of Immunobiology offers a wide range of interdisciplinary, collaborative, and interactive research training and career development opportunities to assist postdoctoral researchers as they transitions to independent research scientists (faculty research interests).

The mission of the Human and Translational Immunology (HTI) Program at the Yale School of Medicine is to accelerate the application of new developments in the field of immunology to the treatment of human diseases. The HTI program is open to all members of the Yale School of Medicine faculty with an interest in human immunology and the contributions of immunology to disease.
The Yale Center for Immuno-Oncology was established in 2018 to build on Yale Cancer Center’s international leadership in immunology, immunobiology, and the development of innovative cancer immunotherapies. The Center is a partnership between Yale Cancer Center and the Department of Immunobiology at Yale School of Medicine.
