Unraveling the mysteries of the immune system in health and disease
The Allen Institute for Immunology will work to understand the dynamic balancing act of the human immune system, how it senses friend from foe and what goes wrong when we’re ill. This will help us to improve immune health and how we diagnose, treat and prevent immune-related diseases. Everything we do begins with patients who are living with and suffering from these diseases. We believe that by unlocking the mysteries of the immune system, we can make a significant improvement in patients’ health and well being.
