Center For Cancer Research DCEG National Cancer Institute

NCI Center of Excellence in Immunology

The Center of Excellence in Immunology (CEI) is one of 5 Centers of Excellence within the NCI Intramural Research Program (IRP). These Centers are multi-disciplinary venues that generate connections among diverse intellectual, financial, and physical resources within the IRP to help develop new initiatives, projects, and collaborations that reduce the burden of cancer.


To foster discovery, development, and delivery of novel immunologic approaches for the prevention and treatment of cancer and cancer-associated viral diseases.

Work in the CEI spans the continuum from basic science discoveries to clinical research applications, and seeks to facilitate high-impact contributions that:

  • Challenge or redefine existing paradigms
  • Develop or employ novel concepts, approaches, methodologies, tools, and technologies
  • Translate successfully into clinical practice


Training opportunities with CCR members of the CEI can be found at CCR Positions Available


NCI intramural principal investigators, senior scientists, senior clinicians, staff scientists, staff clinicians, science administrators as well as scientists from other NIH institutes participate in CEI activities. Please contact Dr. Diana Linnekin if you are interested or have any questions.
