201 (Hilton Atlanta)
Description:
This session highlights applying both conventional and emerging systems concepts from biochemical engineering to aid in understanding immunology and developing immunotherapies. Presentations are invited on the latest developments that have direct relevance to immunology/immunotherapy: (1) experimental approaches that measure immune molecules and immune cell functions including the applications of –omics technologies, (2) molecular engineering, (3) design of next generation assays and (4) computational approaches to analyze, model or predict behavior.
