Thakar lab uses systems biology approaches to identify immune signatures that can predict outcome of an immune response to infections or vaccinations. We develop computational tools to model probable trajectories of the immune response which then allows us to identify parameters that can predict future outcomes of the disease. This has direct implications in early diagnosis. The models also reveal the mechanisms of pathogenesis. This work is based on multi-parameter datasets including gene expression, serum cytokine levels and known information about signaling and metabolic pathways.
