The mission of the Human Immune Monitoring CORE (HIMC) is to leverage cutting edge technology platforms and deep immunological expertise to provide comprehensive immune monitoring services for clinical and translational studies. We are a team of experts specialized in immune profiles of disease and analysis of immune testing and response. We aim to balance the development of innovative immunological assays with a strong focus on optimizing and standardizing protocols and operating procedures to ensure data quality and reproducibility.
Our state-of-the-art facility offers patient specimen processing and storage using electronic sample management and tracking systems. We offer a range of full service immune monitoring assays including phenotypic and functional cellular immunophenotyping, antigen-specific T cell assays, seromics/antibody profiling and multiplexed cytokine and chemokine detection.
The HIMC also provides consultation and assists investigators with clinical and experimental protocol development, preparation of grant applications, and data analysis. Our team of researchers offers expert advice for optimal project-specific immunologic assessment and innovative approaches to evaluate immune responses in clinical studies.
As a reminder: For funding purposes, it is important that you acknowledge the Human Immune Monitoring CoRE in all publications that include data derived from this facility.
