Focus on Immunology
We're constantly growing our expertise in Immunology so that we can continue to discover and develop innovative medicines for patients living with debilitating diseases, such as lupus erythematosus, asthma, inflammatory bowel disease, and idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis.
At Genentech our research and discovery efforts into aspects of innate and adaptive immunity are applied to the understanding and treatment of autoimmune and inflammatory disorders. A greater understanding of basic mechanisms of immune cell function creates scientific opportunities to affect the treatment of autoimmune, inflammatory, and fibrotic diseases. We also rely on human patient samples and data from observational and interventional clinical trials to define the pathogenic mechanisms underlying unmet medical needs in complex chronic diseases.
