Immunologists are medical doctors specializing in the practical research and application of immunological medical care that includes strengthening and protecting the body’s natural defenses against diseases as well as applying preventive inoculation against known contagious diseases. They also diagnose and treat disorders of the immune systems. Research immunologists work with a team of microbiologists, geneticists and other scientists including environmentalists when dealing with diseases and developing vaccines.
