The Immunology Program has 21 members from departments in the University of Minnesota Medical School, the College of Veterinary Medicine, and the College of Science and Engineering.
The scientific goal of the Immunology Program is to define the basic mechanisms that control adaptive immunity in order to develop immunotherapies that overcome the significant barriers associated with generating a durable immune response against tumor-associated antigens.
