The Division of Immunology is actively participating in mainstream research programmes of the Institute. This department is actively engaged in immunodiagnosis, host – parasite interaction, identification of leishmania research on target for vaccine development and Immunoprophylactic. Thirteen research scholars have been awarded PhD under the ages of university as Allahabad, University of Calcutta, Bihar University, Muzaffarpur and NIPER, Hajipur. The nature of our research is on advancement of current understanding on immune response against parasitic diseases especially the leishmaniasis and as utilized both in basic and applied aspect to fit competency in elimination program strategies governed by ICMR and government of India.
