Immunology and Infectious Disease Grants

The overarching goal of the Immunology Research Program Area is to define unique and evolutionarily conserved features of canine immune response pathways, and to determine how these pathways initiate, sustain, moderate, and resolve immune responses in dogs.  This program supports basic science and clinical research into the pathophysiology of immune-mediated disease, the molecular and genetic basis of immune-mediated disease and the identification of potential therapeutic drugs that reduce the pathology associated with immune-mediated disease.

The Immunology Research Program is combined with the Infectious Disease Research Program because there is substantial overlap in protection against and resolution of pathogenic infection and immunity against pathogens.
