With increased understanding of the role of immune system in virtually every disease, it is presently a great time to be involved in immunology! The Immunology Interest Section encompasses the interests of those who provide both clinical and laboratory services for patients with diseases resulting from disordered immunological mechanisms. Areas of focus, expertise and advocacy for the Immunology Interest Section include: primary immune deficiency disorders, autoimmune diseases, laboratory assessment of immune function, and immunomodulatory therapies.
