Mission Statement

The Chiba University-UC San Diego Immunology Initiative has created the Center for Mucosal Immunology, Allergy and Vaccines. Our mission is to develop and apply new information that will improve human and animal health related to diseases in mucosal tissues. We emphasize the development of the most talented young scientists from around the world to begin their own careers that apply knowledge in mucosal immunity to impact global health, infectious diseases, inflammatory bowel disease, adverse reactions to food, asthma and the development of mucosal vaccines.
