Immunology & Allergy
A Look at Immunology & Allergy
As the home of the Canadian Center for Primary Immunodeficiency, the Division of Immunology/Allergy provides unique clinical and laboratory diagnostic services for immunodeficiency. It is the nation's home for complex treatments, such as bone marrow transplantation. Another major focus in the division is to provide tertiary consultation for complex allergic disorders.
The great exposure to a variety of patients with allergic disorders and immunodeficiency in our division provides an ideal environment for educating young subspecialists in Allergy and clinical Immunology as well as core paediatric and Internal Medicine specialists.
Research in the division is directly linked to the clinical and educational goals as it concentrates on studying the molecular and genetic basis of immunodeficiency, susceptibility to infection and allergy. This translational research is backed by related basic science in the areas of lymphocyte development and signal transduction.
