The immunology, imaging, and informatics in Precision ImmunoMedicine (iPRIME) initiative invites you to register for our Launch Symposium with a networking reception to follow the event.
The morning session will begin with a light breakfast, followed by presentations about iPRIME by the three PI’s of the University-wide initiative, Drs. Coleen McNamara, Angela Taylor, and Stefan Bekiranov. We will then provide lunch for the attendees. The afternoon session will feature speakers who are working on projects related to the goals of the program.
Our goals are to use cutting-each technology in imaging, informatics, and immunology as part of a strategic plan to make UVA a global center for precision immunomedicine for cardiovascular disease (CVD). One of the markers of CVD is increased inflammation in cardiovascular tissues, which is modulated by the immune system. The iPRIME initiative focuses on the immune system as it plays a crucial role in the progression, severity, and outcomes of CVD. While immunomodulatory therapies have emerged as potential therapeutics for CVD, a full understanding of mechanisms, biomarkers, and effective and tailored therapies in humans is lacking.
