Systems Immunology Division
The Systems Immunology Division at BRI is developing a way to provide an immune system profile that begins at birth and continues through a person's life.
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 and 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 ways to use simple blood tests to measure immune system profiles that predict responses to immunotherapy for individual autoimmune or cancer patients. With these profiles, treatment for these diseases may be specifically tailored to each person.
