Solving the mysteries of bioscience
We are an independent nonprofit bioscience research institute aimed at unlocking the mysteries of human biology through foundational science.
Foundational Science Fuels Breakthroughs
We are leaders in large-scale research that transforms our understanding of human health and disease and shapes how science is conducted worldwide.
Inspiring Next-Generation Scientists
To us, open science extends to inspiring the next generation of scientists by supporting access to science resources, research, and experiences.
The Allen Institute for Immunology works to understand the delicate balancing act of the human immune system—how it works when we’re healthy, and what goes wrong in disease.
Our studies and data on the immune system lead to actionable insights that will help scientists find treatments and therapies for immune-related diseases.
The Human Immune System Explorer
The Human Immune System Explorer is a portal for exploring the Allen Institute for Immunology’s research, analyses, methodology, visualization tools, data, and other resources.
To truly understand the human immune system, we must look at it through many different lenses and at multiple time points. The Allen Institute for Immunology is made up of teams that focus on specific areas, so together we can gain a more complete picture of the immune system in different contexts.
