Immunology at the University of Rochester Medical Center is concentrated in the Department of Microbiology & Immunology, but it has long been an interdepartmental program with faculty in both basic science and clinical departments and centers throughout the medical center. This program dates back many decades with several pivotal points at which strong scientists were recruited that strengthened the already existing research and training efforts. One of these points was the recruitment in the early 1970s of Drs John Kappler and Philippa Marrack, whose research acumen was already evident. In addition, new units of clinical immunology and infectious diseases were created in the Department of Medicine and basic and clinical researchers were hired. During this time, Dr David Smith and his colleagues in the Department of Pediatrics developed the vaccine against Hemophilus influenzae type B, which was remarkably successful and has virtually eliminated meningitis. In 1980, in a joint effort b ...
