The Center for Innate Immunity and Immune Disease

Harnessing innate immunity to improve human health.  


CIIID is a scientific research center based at the University of Washington School of Medicine in Seattle, where researchers from diverse scientific backgrounds work together and focus their expertise to discover how innate immunity dictates the body’s response to infectious disease or impacts autoimmune disease. CIIID scientists have access to four world class service cores with specific expertise in innate immunity: Human Cell Signaling, Transgenic Mouse Core, Immuno-informatics & Computational Modeling Core, and Translation Core.  The CIIID also features an Education Core that hosts multiple programs for middle and high school students to conduct research in innate immunity.
