Biomarkers and systems immunology
This research area aims at creating capabilities for discovery and validation of diagnostic, predictive, prognostic and therapeutic biomarkers. In addition, building capabilities for systems immunology and systems virologi of COVID-19 infected patients, as well as concepts towards individualized monitoring and targeting of cytokine storms are also part of the aim.
This area consists of 6 individual projects, funded a total of 6,6 MSEK. Led by researchers at KTH Royal Institute of Technology, Karolinska Institutet, University of Gothenburg, Lund University and Linköping University.
