The Department offers excellent research facilities and instrumentation which is available for basic and clinical research.
In the context of a major Medical Center, the Department provides a highly-collaborative environment for the pursuit of both basic and translational research.
Within the Department of Immunology close collaborations are fostered between:
- basic researchers
- diagnostic teams and
- clinical immunologists
to understand human disease, develop novel diagnostics and identify therapeutic targets.
Researchers in the Department of Immunology collaborate extensively with other Departments at Erasmus MC (Pediatrics, Neurology, Rheumatology, Hematology, Pulmonary diseases, Oncology and many others) and with other national and international partners.
