Miraldi Research Lab
The Miraldi lab’s focus is mathematical modeling of the immune system from high-dimensional genomics measurements. In close collaboration with experimental immunologists, we seek to learn how diverse immune cells sense and respond to their environment in both health and disease. Our studies leverage new biotechnologies (e.g., chromatin accessibility, single-cell genomics measurements) and often require development of new computational methods. The resulting genome-scale models provide unbiased, experimentally testable hypotheses. Long-term, we would like to use these models to re-engineer immune-cell behavior in the context of autoimmunity, cancer and other diseases.
