Welcome to the Department of Immunology.

The history of immunology at Roswell Park Comprehensive Cancer Center is a long and illustrious one: The first scientific observation implicating immune responses against malignancies (1904), pioneering use of antibodies for cancer treatment (1954), demonstration of the anti-tumor immunomodulatory effects of chemotherapy (1960) and defining the immunomodulatory mechanisms of fever range hyperthermia (1998). The work of the Department is now focused on the increasingly complex interactions between tumors and the immune system.

We are currently hiring for an Assistant or Associate level faculty member.  Please see requirements here.
