Immunology/Inflammation

An ounce of prevention

Our internationally recognized team of immunology and inflammation researchers are dedicated to finding ways to preventing and reducing the symptoms of serious illnesses. This research team focuses on six key components:

  • how the immune system defends against infection
  • how the immune system can be used to treat cancer
  • how we can better treat inflammatory diseases such as arthritis, asthma and multiple sclerosis
  • the development of new immunotherapies that can be used alone or combined with current cancer treatments
  • developing vaccines
  • exploring ways to prevent and control the inflammation responsible for many devastating chronic diseases

As a student, you’ll have many opportunities to get involved in basic or translational research projects in immunology or inflammation. We’ve attracted a substantial amount of research funding, resulting in a variety of research areas and training to choose from, including:

You’ll also have the added benefit of learning from experienced researchers, many of whom are also physicians with research laboratories in the IWK Health Centre.
