Christine Palmer's Summary

My research interest throughout my career has been focused on human immunology, and I have worked on this in a variety of settings from basic inflammation and auto-immunity to infectious diseases, neonatal immunology, stem cell transplant and vaccine research.

My current position at the Ragon Institute involved the establishment of a Human Immune Monitoring Platform, which was approved as an official core facility of Massachusetts General Hospital in June 2014 after an 18-month period of establishing standardized assays, infrastructure, and administrative and business approval.

I now serve as the Executive Director of the Ragon Institute Human Immune Monitoring Core, a resource aimed at providing a platform to enable standardized immune phenotyping of human disease cohorts across the greater Boston scientific community. The mission of this core is to provide a comprehensive source for standardized state-of-the-art immune monitoring services for clinical, observational and translational studies. The aim is to provide laboratory resources for investigators and to create a large multi-cohort, multi-disease human immune data repository that will allow future large-scale analyses to help us understand the human immune system in health and disease. Investigators can chose to utilize the Ragon HIMC laboratory services only, but we encourage investigators to contribute to the Human Immunology Database when possible, as this will benefit both individual investigators and our understanding of human immune function in health and disease in general.
