University of Washington Immunology

The Department of Immunology is a basic science department within the University of Washington, School of Medicine located in Seattle. Our faculty engage in teaching and conduct research on the development and function of the immune system. The department provides a dynamic research environment for immunological discovery and a superb training environment for the next generation of biomedical scientists.

Our mission in the Department of Immunology is to advance understanding of the function of the immune system in order to enhance our ability to fight infectious disease, cancer and autoimmune disease.  Basic research of all aspects of immunology is critical to this mission, as well as translational research to link our findings to the development of new therapies.

We hold diversity and inclusiveness as core values in our department and emphasize their importance throughout our research, education and practice. We strive to create a climate that fosters belonging, respect and value for all within our scientific community and the institution.
