Welcome to HUMIGEN, The Institute for Genetic Immunology.

HUMIGEN is an independent basic research organization whose mission is to understand the relationship between human health, the immune system, and disease pathogenesis and outcome.

HUMIGEN was formed in January 2007 with a role to bring a long-term program of basic and translational research into being that would address upcoming areas of human immunology, and the function and genetics of immune response.

Our goal is to understand how the immune system works and is regulated, and to understand how faults in its regulation influence human health. Using this information we probe disease biology in order to identify markers of disease development and prognosis, and targets for therapeutic intervention. Our ultimate goal is to contribute to the diagnosis and treatment of immune system-mediated diseases, and advance human health.
