Measuring the Influenza Immune Response using Giant Magnetoresistive (GMR) Biosensors by Neeraja Ravi

Measuring the Influenza Immune Response using Giant Magnetoresistive (GMR) Biosensors by Neeraja Ravi

Traditional disease diagnostics test for virus presence, but an alternate strategy could examine the body's host response against the virus.

Using experiments and computational models to understand how immune cells move by Emmet Francis

Using experiments and computational models to understand how immune cells move by Emmet Francis

My work explores the fundamental principles behind immune cell movement, with a particular focus on phagocytosis, the process by which certain white blood cells engulf pathogens such as bacteria or fungi.

Dissecting the Role of Heterogeneity in Squamous Skin Cancer Metastasis by Daphne Superville

Dissecting the Role of Heterogeneity in Squamous Skin Cancer Metastasis by Daphne Superville

Metastasis, the process by which tumor cells spread to distant organs, remains an untreatable facet of tumor progression and is responsible for the majority of cancer-related deaths.

Representing Genetic Diversity with Pangenomes by Xian Chang

Representing Genetic Diversity with Pangenomes by Xian Chang

The human reference genome is one of the most important and widely used resources in biological research, but it is essentially just one person's genome, and using it for genomic analyses can be inaccurate for people who are genetically dissimilar to that person.
