Immunology, Virology, and Microbiology
Investigations into the workings of the immune system are yielding progress against diseases such as cancer, autoimmune disorders, and infections like HIV, hepatitis C, and Zika. Work in this area covers the basic mechanisms of immunity, the biology of disease-causing agents, and new treatment approaches from vaccines and antibiotics to personalized immunotherapies.
