UC Davis Today: Fighting disease
Fighting disease: Graduate studies in immunology
UC Davis is training the next generation of biomedical leaders in its nationally ranked immunology program. Students in the Graduate Group in Immunology benefit from an interdisciplinary, flexible program that offers state-of-the-art facilities and dedicated faculty mentors. It offers a strong focus in infection and immunity, as well as respected programs in nutrition and immunity, autoimmunity, cancer therapy, and diagnosis and treatment.
Knowledge gained through immunology research is now being applied to the treatment of diseases, and UC Davis scientists and students are leading the way in moving such discoveries into patient care.
