Description

Immunology unit has it's origin from the laboratory of immunology which was one of the laboratories created in 1969 within the department of Human Pathology. In 1972, the laboratory became a WHO Immunology Research and Training Center providing teaching and research for the African region. In 1979 the center was handed over to the University of Nairobi, and it became a section of immunology in the Department of Pathology. The Unit of immunology has currently an academic status within the college of Health Sciences.

As a laboratory we provide a central focus for both clinical research and diagnostic services within the country.
