Center Overview

Our Center is based on four scientific pillars:

  • Deep mechanistic analysis of the adaptive immune responses of COVID-19 patients, spanning serological, B cell and T cell responses,
  • Analysis of immune responses in the blood as well as mucosal sites,
  • Comparing immune responses induced by infection to those induced by candidate vaccines, and
  • Studying medically underserved, underrepresented and at-risk patient populations.


Within these parameters, we will attempt to determine the factors that result in effective and durable immunity to SARS-CoV-2 infection.
