The research interests of the Divisions are necessarily broad, although many groups work in the general area of immunity, inflammation and infection. The Department aims to perform high quality basic scientific as well as translational research, and to do this maximising synergy with other scientists on the Cambridge Biomedical Campus and throughout the region.
