The Medical Immunology Campus Erlangen is an Interdisciplinary Research Center of the Friedrich-Alexander-Universität Erlangen-Nürnberg. In March 2009, scientists of various departments of the Medical Faculty and the Department of Biology have convened to join their forces and to improve scientific infrastructure in all disciplines related to immunobiology and clinical immunology. The group consists of over 100 university teachers, such as university professors, junior professors and Privatdozenten. We wish to integrate research activities into the Interdisciplinary Research Center and to pool our skills and strengths in basic and clinical immunology research at the university and our academic partners and cooperators in non-university research institutions.
