The Cambridge Institute of Therapeutic Immunology and Infectious Disease (CITIID) was established by the Department of Medicine to support both fundamental and translational research on human disease.
We house around 250 scientists working within 25 research groups. Our work focusses on understanding the pathogenesis and improving the management of immune-related disorders and transforming our understanding of how the infectious agents interact with humans.
CITIID transforms immunity and infection research in Cambridge by providing researchers with advanced facilities that are in close proximity and enable them to optimise their work on human immune, inflammatory and infectious diseases. By bringing together its clinical capabilities and key industry partners, CITIID is also well-placed to drive therapeutic breakthroughs, improve patient outcomes and advance population health both in the UK and abroad.
