Career as a Immunologist
Immunologists study, understand and examine the principles & mechanisms of the immune system and immune responses in the context of infection, malignancy and immunological disorders in humans. These include but are not limited to allergy, cancer, asthma, or viral/ bacterial infections as well as chemical exposures to hazardous substances like asbestos or arsenic. Some Immunologists may also specialize in the area of laboratory medicine and drug discovery. Immunologists focus on the structure and functioning of the immune system at the cellular, molecular and genetic level, and how it relates to health and disease. Immunologists can be both from a clinical and a non-clinical background.
