Immunology

The Steven and Richard Bader Immunological Institute 

A child with a primary immune deficiency has an immune system that does not work at all, or does not work well, usually due to a hereditary or genetic defect. When that happens, the child will have a reduced ability to resist or get rid of an infectious disease. At the Immunological Unit, we diagnose and treat children with frequent infections and possible immune deficiency. Our specialty team includes physicians in the fields of pediatric immunology and infectious diseases, and we consult frequently with other specialists in the areas of allergy and hematology. This multidisciplinary approach to evaluation and treatment is of enormous benefit to the child, who is spared the expense and trauma of visits to multiple specialists where diagnostic evaluations are often repeated.  Our facility has specialized on-site laboratories that are can analyze immune function, and have microbiologic and full viral diagnostic capabilities.
 
Education and research are also important missions of the institute.  Continuing medical education programs for other physicians, community outreach programs, and clinical research are a significant part of the institute's activities.
 

 

The Bader family funded the establishment of the institute in memory of Steven Bader, who died of cancer at 19 in 1983.
