Center for Molecular Immunology and Infectious Disease
Investigating the regulation of immunity and the mechanisms that infectious agents utilize to circumvent the normal immune response could provide novel therapeutic targets for modulating and controlling immunity and inflammation. The CMIID was established to facilitate interactions amongst researchers interested in immunology and infectious diseases within and outside the Penn State community. Our members’ areas of expertise include viral and bacterial diseases, autoimmunity and cancers. The CMIID is committed to discovering the mechanisms that contribute to disease, developing novel therapeutic strategies, and educating the next generation of scientists to carry on our mission.
