What is Immunology?

Immunology is the study of diseases of the human body's built-in system. In a healthy person, the immune system helps the body battle infection by rejecting foreign viruses and bacteria. When the immune system is defective, it can fail to defend the body or even attack it.

Our Rochester General Health System (RGHS) immunologists and researchers who study immunology are continuously working to develop increasingly advanced immune therapies and vaccinations. Our immunology success with treatment in our patients with immune system disorders speaks for itself.
