The Stanford Immunology Interdepartmental Program (IDP) offers interdisciplinary training in research and teaching leading to a Ph.D. in Immunology. The primary goal of the program is to provide outstanding training and education and graduating productive and innovative young scientists prepared for successful careers in immunology and related disciplines. Our students benefit greatly from the long tradition of collaboration among the immunology laboratories, with an emphasis on the application of cutting edge approaches to problems in cellular, molecular, computational, and clinical immunology. Immunology faculty members are leaders in their respective areas of research, and often incorporate bench to bedside approaches.
