Department of Immunology

The Department of Immunology at the University of Pittsburgh has a long tradition of excellence in immunology research and training. Students and postdoctoral fellows walk through hallways that are pictorial reminders of the days when Jonas Salk worked here on discovering the polio vaccine, or when Niels Jerne chaired the Microbiology Department and worked on perfecting the Jerne plaque assay for antibody producing cells.
