Tumor and Transplant Immunology
The realm of immunology encompasses basic science and clinical applied medicine. It continues to evolve from its initial studies of innate immunity and resulting physiologic response. Its entirety includes the primary therapy of cancers and the modulation of the immune system in cancer therapy as well as the suppression during transplantation to prevent recognition of non-self.
