The Graduate Program in Immunology

At The Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine

Welcome to the Graduate Program in Immunology at The Johns Hopkins School of Medicine! Since 1982, our program continues to be at the forefront of cutting-edge biomedical research. Our mission is to train the next generation of researchers who, through active scholarship, contribute to the generation of new knowledge on the basic mechanisms of the immune system and the application of this knowledge to the understanding and treatment of disease.
