ImmunoSenescenza: cellule e molecole in funzione dell'età e dell'ambiente. (DSB.AD001.151)
Project areaOncologia e Immunologia (DSB.AD001)
Structure responsible for the research project
The Project focusses on the discovery of the factors contributing to the variance of hundreds of traits of the immune system that will be referred as "Immunophenotypes". The diverse factors influencing the immune system considered were the genetics, the ageing, the sex, and environmental such as exposure to cigarette smoke.
The Project aims to quantify the age-related /life-long changes of the immune system in thousands of individuals, aged 18 to 110 years through the analysis of flow-sorted immune cell traits belonging to the innate and adaptive immunity that immunophenotypes through seven multicolor antibody panels.
