Institute for Immunology
The Penn IFI is a Type-2 multidisciplinary center administered by the School of Medicine that will serve as an institution-wide locus for faculty members and trainees with clinical and scientific interests in immunologically relevant areas.
The IFI seeks to galvanize new interactions among our members and to synergize with the other institutes, centers, and departments on campus. Penn's scientific pre-eminence, world-class clinical operation, and cooperative spirit should allow us to actualize the promises of bench-to-bedside investigation, diagnosis and therapy of infectious and immune-mediated diseases that have been enabled by modern science.
For more information on how to become a member, please visit the IFI website.
