Welcome to the Vanderbilt Center for Immunobiology (VCI).  The immune system and inflammation are found more and more to influence a wide range of pathologies, including infections, diabetes, cancer, and others. 

The VCI was founded to foster basic science research and education on the immune system across Vanderbilt University and Vanderbilt University Medical Center.  With approximately 60 associated faculty across various departments, the VCI encompasses all of immunology and interacts closely with the Vanderbilt Institute for Infection, Immunology, and Inflammation (VI4), the Vanderbilt Ingram Cancer Center (VICC), and other centers and institutes to foster and grow a community for immunologists.
