Welcome to the Cambridge Immunology Network

marion GC NP.pngThe immune system is the highly evolved set of mechanisms our bodies use to tackle any threats such as infections and cancers.

Immunology examines the structure and function of the immune system.

The Cambridge Immunology Network is a  community for immunologists working in and around Cambridge. It builds on a rich tradition of immunological research in Cambridge, and brings together groups whose work ranges from discovery of the basic molecular mechanisms underpinning the immune response through to applications relevant to the clinic, to industry and to global health. Working across disciplines, schools, institutes and departments we can tackle bigger problems and answer more fundamental questions.

This website provides a searchable directory of researchers arranged by theme, institute, name and key word. You can also find information about relevant seminars (download pdf with schedule here), funding opportunities and the latest immunology community news and events.

The new Capella building- CITIID

See the home of CITIID being built in this fantastic time-lapse video. From basement to water tight in 17 months. The Capella building will be finished in 2018.

Fibroblast

‘Fibroblast’ has been developed from a conversation between Harold Offeh and Dr Alice Denton, a scientist based at the Babraham Institute and a member of the Cambridge Immunology Network. Offeh was particularly interested in the character and roles played by particular cells in the immune system, as well as the immune system’s role as a primary source of protection and care. The film takes as a starting point microscopic images of broblast cells, an area of research for Dr Denton.
