Welcome to the Infectious Disease &
Immunology Institute!

The mission of the infectious Disease and Immunology Institute (InDII) is to understand interactions between microbes and the immune system, and to translate this knowledge to the treatment, control and prevention of diseases caused by human infectious agents. We are committed to establishing collaborations among basic and clinical scientists studying microbes and the immune system.
