A comprehensive approach to treating immune deficiency disorders

We offer comfort and multidisciplinary care for children and adults with primary immune deficiency disorders

Immune Deficiency

The Immune Deficiency Program at Lucile Packard Children’s Hospital Stanford is dedicated to the care of patients with primary immune deficiencies. Our program is one of six national Jeffrey Modell Centers of Excellence established to serve in the recognition and the treatment of patients of all ages with primary immune deficiencies.

Our services include:

  • Diagnostic and therapeutic services for patients with suspected or known primary immune deficiency disorders
  • Assistance to families and physicians in the evaluation and care of individuals with such disorders

All new immune deficiency patients need a referral before scheduling an appointment. Please ask your child’s pediatrician to send us a referral and then our scheduling team will contact you to make an appointment.


Our research interests in the laboratory focus on the innate and adaptive immune system and their role in immune-mediated diseases. Our group has a broad range of research interests that include:

  • The fundamental process of T cell activation versus tolerance
  • Regulatory T cells (Treg)
  • Neonatal immunity
  • Immune diseases of the esophagus and GI tract
  • Vaccines and vaccine adjuvants
  • Viral infections

Our clinical research projects offer drug therapies to selected patients. You can learn more about our research by visiting our Pediatric Immunology division website.
