The Andorf Lab primarily focuses on computational approaches in the intersection of immunological and clinical research to study underlying causes and novel approaches for the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of disease. Most of our research is in the field of food allergy. However, we also study other immune-mediated disorders. Our projects often involve the analysis of single-cell data from assays such as flow cytometry (FCM) or mass cytometry (CyTOF), and much of our work is collaborative with experimental biologists, clinicians and biostatisticians.
A secondary focus of the Andorf Lab is the reuse of individual-level clinical study data. For this research, we leverage data that are available in the immunology database and analysis portal (ImmPort) and other similar resources.
