About this non-profit:

“Life Without Disease” Inside each of us lies a vast potential to fight disease. From viral and parasitic to bacterial infections and cancers, the immune system is the primary way the human body combats disease. Imagine if we could decode the immune system to unlock new preventions and treatments for some of the world’s most devastating diseases. Imagine a life expectancy of 125 years or more with no sick days, not even one doctor’s visit or day spent in a hospital. This is La Jolla Institute for Immunology’s mission in a nutshell. Every day, its researchers work towards making discoveries that will lead to better preventions ultimately cures for immune system-related diseases as well as ways to improve the vaccines that the world so desperately needs. We take you now to La Jolla, California, and inside the institute’s fight against disease.
