Who We Are

The Program in Cellular and Molecular Medicine (PCMM), previously known as the Immune Disease Institute (IDI), is a research program at Boston Children's Hospital (BCH) recognized worldwide for its discoveries that increase the body's ability to fight disease and to heal.

The breakthroughs of PCMM scientists are greatly increasing our understanding of the influence of immune defense and inflammation on medical discovery, healthcare, and disease management.

PCMM officially joined seven other interdisciplinary programs at Children's Hospital in October 2012 with the goal of increasing collaborations and scientific synergies.

We are academically affiliated with Harvard Medical School (HMS), and our investigators hold appointments in departments of the medical school.
