Our patients directly benefit from the groundbreaking advances of the world-renowned Columbia Center for Translational Immunology (CCTI) that studies organ transplantation, hematopoietic cell transplantation, Type I diabetes, other areas of autoimmunity, tumor immunology, stem cell biology and basic immunology. CCTI is a research center aimed at bringing advances in basic immunology to patient care by gaining greater understanding of immune system. CCTI investigators have expertise at all levels of immunology and transplantation, from molecular biology to large animal and clinical transplantation studies.
Our specialists provide initial diagnoses, second opinions, immunologic testing, genetic testing as well as expert medical care. The initial comprehensive evaluation includes a thorough patient history, physical examination, and detailed review of previous records and test results.
These immunodeficiencies are usually present at birth and are hereditary. Though rare, they typically become evident during infancy or childhood but can become evident during adulthood. There are more than 100 different disorders such as humoral or cellular immunity. Examples include X-linked agammaglobulinemia, common variable immunodeficiency, and severe combined immunodeficiency, which is known as “boy in a bubble” disease.
We have offices at multiple locations, including Columbia University Medical Center on Broadway and W. 168th St and ColumbiaDoctors Midtown at 51 W 51 St.
