The Immunity and Infection Research Centre (IIRC) is a collaborative and highly productive team of basic scientists, clinicians, and health professionals whose expertise spans genomics, molecular microbiology, immunology, infectious diseases, transplantation immunology, medical genetics, epidemiology, health care delivery, and policy development.

We study the basic mechanisms of human immune responses involved in transplantation and infectious diseases in order to improve public health outcomes and health services.
