The intersection of biology, immunology and data analysis
Systems immunology is an area of research that uses mathematics and computer analysis to examine cells, molecules and processes in the immune system. BRI’s Center for Systems Immunology uses the latest tools to collect, process and examine data from studies across BRI and around the world. We select and implement new technologies and develop approaches to organize and analyze large data sets. Our goal is to make new insights about the immune system and the diseases that affect it.

Groups in the Center for Systems Immunology
The Bioinformatics Group partners with researchers throughout BRI to help make sense of complex multi-dimensional data. They are an integral part of the Center for Systems Immunology and are a prime example of the institutes many internal resources.
Gut Immunity Program
The Gut Immunity Program studies how immune responses in the gut go wrong and lead to inflammatory bowel diseases (IBD) such as, celiac disease, Crohn's & colitis and other autoimmune conditions. Researchers use model systems, biorepository samples and clinical studies to understand how immune responses go awry. They also study the gut microbiome and how immune responses in the gut contribute to other autoimmune diseases.
