The CTI aims to improve the quality of life of those suffering from allergic and (chronic) inflammatory diseases due to a failing immune system.

Therefore, the CTI conducts multidisciplinary translational immunological research at the highest level. This high level also applies to the way in which we conduct our research. Our research results contribute (directly) to improving the diagnostics and treatment of patients. Moreover, we aim for the highest possible societal benefit from our knowledge and expertise. We also aim to secure our expertise for the future, which is why we invest in monitoring, training and educating young talent.
