  • Examination of cellular and molecular biomarkers of health and immunity including circulating inflammatory mediators, immune cell phenotype and function, and epigenetic (DNA methylation) profiling.
  • Use of high dimensional OMICs assays (genomic, transcriptomic and epigenomic) to characterize cellular phenotypes and function.
  • Development and validation of cellular and molecular assays in novel biospecimen types (ie. cryopreserved whole blood)
  • Use of multi-marker data, including biological, physical and physiological measures, to estimate biological age (accelerated aging) and characterize health-related trajectories.
