Immunology is an integrative branch of the medical sciences that draws upon the more traditional disciplines of Molecular Biology, Microbiology, Pathology, and Biochemistry. In essence, Immunology is the study of the physiological responses that result when foreign (i.e. non-self) materials are introduced into a vertebrate organism such as man. Recent major advances in the understanding of the cellular and molecular basis of the immune response promise to provide a new generation of prophylactic, therapeutic and diagnostic reagents of relevance to human and animal health.
The Department of Immunology is dedicated to excellence in research and teaching. It strives to provide a central focus for both basic and clinical research within the community of Immunologists in Toronto.
