Dr. Bernheim is interested in the integration of the immunological responses, specifically how cytokines affect the outcome of host parasite interactions.

Harry is very involved in University activities including his position as Chair of the Health Professions Recommendation Committee (HPRC), which is responsible for writing letters of recommendation for students applying to health professional schools.

Harry also serves on the Advisory Board for the Community Health Major, a discipline that investigates the reaction and actions that a community takes to various health issues, and he serves on the Faculty Research Awards Committee which has the pleasant task of allocating funds to faculty for research both within and outside the University. He also serves on the Faculty Advisory Board.

Prof. Bernheim is the Faculty Advisor to students who organize and run the Undergraduate Research and Scholarship Symposium. This annual symposium allows students to showcase their original research and scholarship they have conducted or participated in during the current academic year.
