Welcome

The Centre for Immunology and Infection (CII) is a joint research centre created by the Hull York Medical School and the Department of Biology at the University of York.

Research within CII ranges from fundamental studies on the pathogenesis of infectious and non-infectious disease through to first-in-man clinical research.
