The Immunodeficiency and Histiocytosis Program in the Division of Hematology / Oncology has a variety of research protocols open for recruitment. These protocols share the main feature that they serve to better understand immunologic disease, as it pertains to increased susceptibility to infections, autoimmunity, lymphoproliferation and hemophagocytosis. Our research protocols focus on careful characterization of clinical disease combined with comprehensive immunologic and genetic testing of blood and / or tissues.
