Amsterdam institute for Infection and Immunity contains three research programs:

Cancer immunology, Infectious diseases and Inflammatory diseases.


Research within these programs  is multidisciplinary in which innovative fundamental, translational and clinical research are included, aiming to lead to new diagnostics and clinical  applications, which is also reflected in the training of the PhDs within the institute, Medical Immunologists and Clinical Immunologists.

Support in connecting the three programs

The programs within the Amsterdam institute for Infection and Immunity focus on specific diseases but the programs are linked together as the molecular pathways leading to the diseases are often shared between program. There is a strong interaction between the different programs to promote excellence. The Amsterdam institute for Infection and Immunity will stimulate optimal exchange between the programs by focusing on common denominators and/or pathways involved in similar immunological principles. This will result in fundamental research topics but also in diagnostics, biomarker analysis, immune profiling and the development of novel immune based therapies.
