The Amit group studies the function of the Immune system in health and disease. Our main focus is to understand how gene and chromatin regulatory networks control hematopoiesis and immune response. We develop and apply state of the art high throughput genomic tools for single cell and chromatin applications to address these critical biological and therapeutic questions.
