CIHR Human Immunology Network

The CIHR Human Immunology Network (CHIN) is a resource network that promotes and facilitates research in human immunology and its translation into clinical care and public policy.

CHIN operates with a coordinating node and 10 nodes: Western University (Coordinating Node), University of Alberta, University of Calgary, Dalhousie University, University of Manitoba, McGill University, McMaster University, University of Montreal, University of Toronto, University of British Columbia and Western University. 

These major nodes are the drivers of CHIN.  As a research network, CHIN operates as a resource “umbrella” network, facilitating communication between nodes, each with their specialized expertise in human immunology, collaboration and knowledge exchange. The spirit of CHIN is to be inclusive to the interested parties doing research in human immunology and to become an information resource for investigators considering research in human immunology. CHIN will promote and enhance human immunology research in Canada and its international projection, and effectively limit duplication of resources by developing synergies between existing teams.
