The immunoengineering field is transforming cancer, autoimmunity, regeneration, and transplantation treatments by combining the diverse and complex fields of engineering and immunology. There is a significant need to train engineers in immunology and immunologists in quantitative engineering techniques. Moreover, there is a need to bridge basic immunological discoveries with advances in clinical application. This virtual workshop will review immune system fundamentals and components, engineering strategies to modulate the immune system, and clinical applications. After attending this workshop, the learner will demonstrate the ability to:
- Review the fundamentals and recent discoveries in the function of the immune system
- Identify engineering strategies to manipulate the immune system
- Describe the clinical applications of immunoengineering
This workshop meets every Tuesday and Thursday, Jan. 3–19, from 4 to 5:30 p.m. ET. It is designed for graduate students, medical students, residents, and fellows in engineering, immunology, and related fields. Engineering and clinical faculty, and industry members will benefit from the workshop as well.
The full list of speakers, topics, and registration information is on the Johns Hopkins Translational Immunoengineering website.
