Immunotherapy and HIV
Human immune cells come in millions of varieties and they fight disease in all kinds of different ways. To understand how they work together, Penn Medicine researchers mapped out almost a million different families of immune cells by counting them, one at a time.
It took three years to complete this monumental map. But the effort yielded the world’s first comprehensive B-cell clone atlas, and a quantum leap in our ability to identify and treat infectious disease. Soon, a simple blood test will tell us exactly where in the body immune cells are battling disease, and what they might be battling.
The B-cell clone atlas is now an open source project being shared and expanded by researchers around the world.
