The Center for Immunology produces an immense amount of research each year.  The data produced is comprehensive and timely to research across the globe.  Our research is supported by Government, Commercial and Industrial grants and private funds and is produced in our state of the art research facilities.  The research is carried out by faculty members, visiting scholars, post-doctoral fellows, graduate and undergraduate students and technicians. The Center for Immunology also has a strong collaboration history with colleagues at other Universities and research companies worldwide.


 To honor Center for Immunology faculty with 200 or more citations on one paper we have created our wall of honor.
