The Division of Allergy, Immunology, and Transplantation (DAIT) explores how the immune system maintains health and, under abnormal conditions, also contributes to disorders. DAIT supports basic and clinical research to improve our understanding of the causes of immunologic diseases and to develop better diagnostic, treatment, and prevention strategies.
DAIT supports basic and clinical research to increase our understanding of the causes and mechanisms that lead to the development of allergic and immunologic diseases and to expand knowledge that can be applied to improving techniques of diagnosis, treatment, and prevention.
