Systems Immunology Division
Damien Chaussabel, PhD, Director of Systems Immunology
With the explosion of data from genome studies and molecular profiling technologies, huge amounts of biological information are now available. Scientists in the Systems Immunology Division use complex systems theory, high throughput techniques as well as mathematical and computational tools to understand the functioning of the immune system in health and disease.
The Systems Immunology Division is developing a way to provide an immune system profile for individual patients that begins at birth and continues through a person's life, monitoring risk for immune system problems with just a simple blood test. With this profile, it is possible to envision prevention or treatment for these diseases specifically tailored to each person.
