Immunology of Infectious Diseases

The battle between pathogens and therefore the host immune defenses has raged for thousands of years. The system has developed a range of approaches to controlling viral and bacterial infection, that vary  from direct killing of pathogen to elaborating cytokines that inhibit replication. Pathogens have countered by developing a range of immune evasion mechanisms that inhibit cytokine function and inhibit immune recognition of infected cells. Immunology describes how the body copes with microbial, viral, or parasitic infections, cancer, and other diseases. It needs expertise and analysis from the level of the molecules and cells of the immune system all the way up to disease dynamics in populations and ecosystems. Infectious and immune-mediated diseases currently under study include HIV/AIDS, Tuberculosis, Chagas, Malaria, Pneumonia, Enteric Diseases, Inflammatory Bowel, and Autoimmune diseases. Additional immunologic studies focus on genetic regulation of the immune response, the interplay between the innate immune system and intestinal microbial communities, the function and regulation of T-cell-derived cytokines and cytokines involved in the regulation of inflammation.
