Our Next Steps

  • Develop novel immune based therapies based on basic driven concepts
  • Cell based therapies; develop our platform with Winship and GRA
  • Immune check point blockers in cancer and HIV
  • TGF b/ IL-10 for cancer and HIV
  • Modulators of the microbiome and metabolome
  • Develop concept driven clinical trials of immune based therapies in cancer and HIV
  • Generate a data base of predictors of successful immune interventions
  • Train a new breed of scientists at the crossroad of computational science, multi-OMICs platforms and experimental medicine
  • Over the next five years, (PATRU) will provide training to graduate and undergraduate students to develop expertise and knowledge in the area of systems immunology, vaccinology and bioinformatics.
