The immune system protects us from infectious disease through various lines of defense; however, an abnormal immune response can influence or even trigger disease. There are few treatments for most disorders of the immune system, and drug development continues at a fevered pace to target diseases like cancer, multiple sclerosis, IPF, lupus, colitis, and others influenced by immune action. Thus, immunological investigations are becoming increasingly important throughout the discovery and development process.

In our mission to champion the role of immunology in our search for cures, we’ve created a convenient, single-source page dedicated to exploring the complexity of the immune system and its impact on numerous diseases. Here you’ll find a rich collection of content arranged by topics of interest, resource type, and therapeutic area. We invite you to take a deep dive into immunology-related news articles, resources, blog posts, and webinars; meet our scientific team of immunology experts; discover the vast selection of assays and models we offer to support your work from basic research through to the clinic; and learn how we can help to improve the outcomes of your discovery and development programs.
