The Systems Immunology workshop is designed to advance programmatic initiatives at Cincinnati Children’s and University of Cincinnati in systems biology. It will also catalyze efforts to establish a vibrant Center for Systems Immunology. Accomplished postdoctoral fellows as well as faculty in this rapidly expanding arena will be presenting their research initiatives and findings.
The program features Grégoire Altan-Bonnet (NIH Center for Cancer Research) and Daved Fremont (Washington University in St. Louis) as well as postdoctoral fellows and early-stage faculty members from the groups of Altan-Bonnet, Pamela Bjorkman (Caltech), Arup Chakraborty (MIT), Mark Davis and Steve Quake (Stanford), Ron Germain (NIH), Nir Hacohen (Harvard Medical School), Lee Hood (Institute for Systems Biology), Carl June (Penn), Aviv Regev (Broad Institute), and Eric Sundberg (University of Maryland).
Areas of particular interest include gene regulatory and signaling networks, immune-receptor and immunoprotein engineering, along with applications of engineered human immune cells for therapeutic purposes.
