The Center for Human Immunology

Improving human health through a better understanding of human physiology and disease pathogenesis

The Center for Human Immunology (Centre d'Immunologie Humaine, CIH) is a translational research center within the Institut Pasteur, dedicated to investigators (both researchers and clinicians) who are engaged in human subject studies. The goal of the CIH is to facilitate the development of collaborative projects between basic researchers and clinicians and to establish a scientific community of clinically-oriented scientists and research-oriented clinicians.

The CIH was created in November 2007 with funding from the Institut Pasteur, Cancéropôle Ile-de-France, Fondation de la Recherche Médicale and ANRS. It is affiliated with the Immunology Department and Imagopole at the Institut Pasteur, and has been labeled as Center of Excellence by the Federation of Clinical Immunology Societies (FOCiS).

The CIH Technology Platform provides access to state-of-the-art equipment to pursue translational research projects and has dedicated staff to help with the design and implementation of clinical studies.
