The Center for Cellular Profiling was founded to provide a forum for the interaction of clinicians and researchers interested in studying the immune response across multiple translational research areas including:
Current techniques allow the detailed interrogation of blood and pathological tissues from a wide range of species. These include Flow Cytometry, Single-Cell RNA-sequencing, and Spatial Transcriptomics on small populations or single cells. These techniques will enhance understanding of the immune response and how it relates to and influences other biological systems and processes. The infrastructure will integrate several relevant groups that typically have inadequate interactions:
The goal of the Center for Cellular Profiling is to help design insightful immunologic analyses in relevant patient cohorts and then analyze immunologic and genetic data sets in the context of clinical data with the goal to stratify patients into clinically meaningful groups and foster personalized medicine.
