Simlab Nature Biotechnology Article

Welcome to the Systems Immunology Lab. In the lab we study how simple events at the molecular and cellular level of immune cell and pathogen interactions, lead to emergent phenomena of immune specificity and function in health and disease. We do this through the use of cutting edge systems biology and simulation techniques and by close collaboration with experimental laboratories. This close collaboration ensures that our research fits directly within reciprocal cycles of experiment, analysis, modeling and further experimental study. This, in turn, enables us to quickly move from basic (systems) biology questions to concrete biomedical findings.
