Immunology for Quants (I4Q) Seminars

I4Q Screenshot

Biweekly, informal seminars designed to introduce immunology and immune-related diseases to non-immunologists. Topics are generally self-contained and questions are encouraged, so it is not necessary to attend them in sequence. Seminars are held on Thursdays from 12-1 pm. If you are an immunology graduate student, postdoc, or researcher and wish to contribute/teach a session, please contact us!

CHSI Meta-lab Meetings

Every Tuesday 1-2 pm, quantitative faculty, postdocs, staff, and students involved in human systems immunology meet to discuss any of the following:

  • Individual lab research progress
  • Methodological or coding overviews of analysis pipelines (e.g. biokinetics, single-cell analysis)
  • Tutorials on programming tools (e.g. DCC, package development)
  • Research relating to SenNet (a senescent cell project involving multiple CHSI labs)

If you are interested in listening in or joining the mailing list, please email Frances at Links to previous meeting recordings can be accessed here.

Systems Immunology Journal Club

Starting Summer 2020, We hold a discussion session for researchers interested in systems immunology to review papers on state-of-the-art theories, methods and applications. Previous to each session, participants are encouraged to read a recommended paper and during the session the host presenter will lead a discussion. We aim to include a wide range of topics and invite people with different expertise to lead discussions. The club is held on Thursdays from 12-1 pm biweekly and alternates with the Immunology for Quants Seminars. If you are interested in participating or leading a discussion, please contact us at
