The List of Reviewers lists all present, whether permanent or temporary, to provide the full scope of expertise present on that date. Lists are posted 30 days before the meeting and are tentative, pending any last minute changes.

Review Dates

Membership Panel

The membership panel is a list of chartered members only.

Topics


  • Immunologic studies of transplant rejection, focusing on the immune responses to cell, tissue and organ allografts and hematopoietic stem cell transplants.
  • Immune mechanisms underlying the activities of immunosuppressive drugs and therapies for the prevention of allograft rejection.
  • Immunologic tolerance in solid organ and hematopoietic transplants, in small and large animal models, and in clinical studies and trials in humans.
  • Immune mechanisms of development and strategies for prevention of graft vs. host disease (GVHD), including promotion of graft vs. tumor/leukemia (GVT/GVL) effects.
  • Mechanisms of immune tolerance, both central and peripheral, using a variety of systems including animal models of tumor and transplantation.
  • Mechanisms of immunotherapies aiming to modulate immune tolerance for transplantation and tumors.
  • Immune surveillance of tumors: mechanisms of immune evasion or immune suppression in the tumor microenvironment, in both humans and animal models.
  • Immunologic studies and identification of tumor associated antigens.
  • Early stage development and evaluation of tumor vaccines and immune modulation strategies in animal models and non-human primates

Shared Interests and Overlaps

There are shared interests with Surgery, Anesthesiology, and Trauma (SAT) in transplantation. Applications focusing on addressing the immune responses to transplants, immune mechanisms of transplant injury, and immune modulation to improve transplantation outcomes may be reviewed by TTT. Applications proposing to study tissue and organ injury unrelated to immunology may be reviewed by SAT.

There are shared interests with Cancer Immunopathology and Immunotherapy (CII) in tumor immunology. Applications focusing on tumor immunobiology, immune responses, immune suppression, and immune cell functions in relation to tumor development and progression may be reviewed by TTT. Applications proposing to study immune cell pathways and targets for the development of tumor immunotherapies and vaccines may be reviewed by CII.

There are shared interests with the Tumor Microenvironment Study Section (TME) study section. Applications focusing on understanding tumor immunobiology, immune responses, immune suppression, and immune cell functions affected by the tumor microenvironment may be reviewed by TTT. Applications proposing to study the interaction of tumor cells and immune cells in the tumor microenvironment that promote tumorigenesis and progression may be reviewed by TME.

There are shared interests with Cellular and Molecular Immunology – A/B [Cellular and Molecular Immunology A (CMIA) /Cellular and Molecular Immunology B (CMIB)] in cellular and molecular mechanism of immune responses. Applications proposing to study molecular and cellular mechanisms underlying immune responses and tolerance in transplantation and tumors may be reviewed by TTT. Applications focusing on basic cellular and molecular studies of immune mechanisms and immune cell functions may be reviewed by CMIA or CMIB. in cellular and molecular mechanism of immune responses. Applications proposing to study molecular and cellular mechanisms underlying immune responses and tolerance in transplantation and tumors may be reviewed by TTT. Applications focusing on basic cellular and molecular studies of immune mechanisms and immune cell functions may be reviewed by CMIA or CMIB.

There are shared interests with Innate Immunity and Inflammation (III) in the cells and mechanism of innate response and inflammation. Applications proposing to study innate immune cell function and innate immune mechanisms in relation to transplant tolerance and tumor immunity may be reviewed by TTT. Applications focusing on basic innate immune mechanisms and innate immune cell function may be reviewed by III.

There are shared interests with Hypersensitivity, Autoimmune, and Immune-Mediated Diseases (HAI) Diseases in the induction, maintenance and breaking of immune tolerance.
