CHI Symposium: Measuring the Perturbed Human Immune System

Tuesday, October 25, 2011 — Concurrent Symposia Session III

2:00 p.m. – 4:00 p.m.

Room E1/E2


  • Neal Young, NHLBI
  • Ron Germain, NIAID


Despite enormous advances, the human immune system remains largely uncharacterized in health and disease. CHI is using several multiplex high-throughput assays and integrative computation biology to assess the immune system in normal subjects before and after various interventions and perturbations. This symposium will highlight the latest studies conducted in collaboration with various ICs.
