The Medical Immunology Campus Erlangen is an Interdisciplinary Research Center of the University of Erlangen-Nuremberg. In March 2009, scientists of various departments of the Medical School and the Department of Biology have convened to join their forces and to improve scientific infrastructure in all disciplines related to immunobiology and clinical immunology. The group consists of almost 100 university teachers, such as university professors, junior professors and Privatdozenten. We wish to integrate research activities into the Interdisciplinary Research Center and to pool our skills and strengths in basic and clinical immunology research at the university and our academic partners and cooperators in non-university research institutions and industry.
Our vision is to investigate the development, mechanisms and processes of the immune system and immunological disorders, and to successfully translate the results into novel diagnostic and therapeutic applications.
