The Boston University Training Program in Inflammatory Disorders (BU-TPID) is composed of 37 primary basic and clinical research faculty including adjunct faculty from the School of Medicine, School of Public Health, School of Dental Medicine, and the College of Engineering who share an interest in mechanisms of inflammation. Recent recruitment efforts have resulted in the formation of a critical mass of established investigators who study a broad range of inflammatory disorders.

The Mission of the BU-TPID: 1) to foster a robust training and mentoring environment for junior faculty, graduate students, postdoctoral fellows, medical students and medical fellows in inflammation and inflammatory disorders; 2) To create a supportive and interactive atmosphere in which colleagues with a common interest in inflammatory disorders can interact and collaborate; and 3) To recruit additional outstanding faculty to study inflammatory processes and develop therapies.
