Sasha is an Immunobiology PhD student in the laboratory of Dr. Akiko Iwasaki at Yale University. She studies human autoimmune diseases and Long COVID, specifically how the reactivation of latent viruses and endogenous viruses may contribute to their pathogenesis. Sasha collaborates closely with Serimmune, Inc. to characterize antibody responses in these patients. Prior to her graduate studies, Sasha earned her bachelor's degree at Columbia University. She then worked as an associate researcher at Mount Sinai, studying the tumor immune microenvironment.
Emerging technologies allow for extensive diagnosis of the immune system’s role in disease prevention, progression and response to interventions. By combining next generation sequencing, machine learning, and bioinformatics, researchers are using Serimmune’s technology to generate deep immunome information provided by comprehensive antibody profiling to better understand clinical outcomes and allow for expedited diagnostic conclusions. This session will review available cutting-edge immune intelligence technology and present a case study that demonstrates the potential of this technology to improve clinical outcomes for a select disease and across a broad patient population.
