The Centre for Immunology and Infection is a joint research centre between the University of York and Hull York Medical School. Research at the centre is focussed on both basic and applied research in immunology, pathogen biology and experimental medicine.

The Centre's new building, which opened in September 2010, was awarded a grant of £1 million by the Foundation and provides the researchers with three further floors of laboratories as well as facilities for handling high risk pathogens and running clinical trials.

The Centre for Immunology and Infection is at the cutting edge of research into a number of tropical diseases with projects focussing on leishmanisis, schistosomasis and African trypanosomiasis (sleeping sickness). Research into tropical diseases has been of significant interest to the foundation in recent years, and other examples include projects at the Liverpool School of Tropical Medicine and the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine.
