The Human Vaccines Project welcomes Harlan Robins, Ph.D., head of innovation and co-founder at Adaptive Biotechnologies, to the Project’s Scientific Steering Committee.
Adaptive is a pioneer and leader in the field of immune-driven medicine, using their powerful immune profiling platform to reveal and translate the insights of the adaptive immune system with unprecedented scale and precision to change the way we diagnose, treat, and monitor disease. The company joins other leading academic research centers, industry partners, nonprofits and governments to address the primary scientific barriers to developing new vaccines and immunotherapies through the sequencing and analysis of the human immune system.
“Increasing our understanding of the human immune system holds the key to the development of new and improved vaccines and therapies for major global diseases, including cancers, autoimmune, neurodegenerative and infectious diseases,” said Wayne Koff, PhD, president and CEO of the Human Vaccines Project. “Harlan’s expertise makes an invaluable addition to our Scientific Steering Committee. Together with other cross-sector leaders, we will accelerate our understanding of the components and mechanisms of the human immune system required for future diagnosis, prevention and treatment of major diseases.”
