The immune system is at the very center of many aspects of health and disease. The human immune system has evolved to protect us from infections but it is not always able to succeed in that task and conversely it can become unbalanced and cause autoimmune diseases.

Investigators with the Dartmouth Immunology COBRE, supported by a grant from the NIGMS IDeA program at the NIH, are investigating new means of understanding and harnessing the immune system to prevent, diagnose and treat human diseases.
