Immunology Pathways

Immunology is a science dedicated to investigating host defense mechanisms and immune cell functions under physiological and pathological conditions. This includes research on both the innate and adaptive immune response and processes such as pathogen recognition, immune cell activation and recruitment, cytokine secretion, inflammation, and antibody production. The illustrations found in this section highlight pathways that regulate these processes or mechanisms that may contribute to the development of inflammatory or autoimmune diseases.
