Harvard to create “Institute of Translational Immunology”

The Crimson reports that Harvard Med is expanding its immunology program

More on the program: 

This committee will be accompanied by the newly-created Division of Immunology within the restructured Department of Microbiology and Immunobiology.

The final tier of the initiative is the Harvard Institute of Translational Immunology (HITI), which will take a multidisciplinary approach to the field of immunology and “train the next generation of translational and clinical immunologists.”

Additionally, the Helmsley Trust has funded a new pilot grant program—based out of HITI—that will devote its initial research to type 1 diabetes and Crohn’s disease.
