Stanford Bio-X Frontiers in Interdisciplinary Biosciences Seminar
Speaker: Arup Chakraborty, MIT
Seminar Title: "How to Hit Highly Mutable Pathogens Where It Hurts"
Hosted by: Dr. Jian Qin, Assistant Professor of Chemical Engineering, Stanford University
The Chakraborty group is focused on understanding how the adaptive immune system is regulated, and on harnessing this understanding to design vaccines against scourges such as HIV. They confront these challenges by bringing together theoretical and computational studies, rooted in statistical mechanics, with a diversity of biological experiments and clinical data.
