Hey Doc – How’s My Immune System Doing?
September 17, 2019 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pmFree
Dr. Shai Shen-Orr, Technion Professor and Director of Multidisciplinary Systems Immunology & Precision Medicine Lab, will discuss how advances in technology are bringing scientists at the Technion closer to reliably quantifying a person’s immune age. This new metric could see chronological age augmented by immune age as a way of improving drug development programs to produce a higher likelihood of success.
Dr. Shen-Orr stated in a recent article in Forbes magazine, “The immune age is a biological clock that will help to identify the decline and progress in immunity that occurs in old age, to determine preventive measures and develop new treatment modalities to minimize chronic disease and death.”
