The Mission of the Center for Immunoengineering at Georgia Tech is to create breakthrough engineering tools, methods, and solutions for personalized and predictive health care in patients with particular focus on the following three Grand Challenges:

  1. Ability to rapidly provide a comprehensive immunological status of a patient
  2. Ability to quantitatively predict immune function in a patient and
  3. Ability to precisely modulate and control the immune response of a patient

The center’s goal is to improve human health, in a personalized and predictive manner, through the application of innovative technologies to clinically relevant problems. Disease targets currently being investigated by Center Researchers include infectious diseases such as HIV and hepatitis; autoimmune disorders such as diabetes and lupus; improving clinical transplantation protocols; cancer; inflammatory conditions such as device-associated infection, arthritis, and inflammatory bowel disease.
