Since its inception in 2013, the CIIC had a unanimous consensus that clinical research should be a major part of our mission of trying to better the lives of our patients.

Immunology is on the forefront of scientific research and innovations which have lead to numerous achievements in immunology diagnostics and treatments.

By far, PIDD have lead to our understanding and further exploration in the field of immunology. Many CIIC members have a significant experience both in clinical and bench research in the field of immunology. We believe that as a group, we can combine forces and participate primarily in clinical research to further understand PIDD and engage in evaluating therapeutic solutions with the main goal to improve the life of our patients with PIDD.
