The Allen Discovery Center for Neuroimmune Interactions at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai
In just the last decade, peripheral neuroimmune interactions have been revealed to be key in regulating a variety of processes ranging from immunity and inflammation to cancer and metabolism. Leading a diverse team of investigators, Brian S. Kim at Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai and David Artis at Weill Medical College of Cornell University will launch the ADC for Neuroimmune Interactions, with the aim to accelerate discoveries centered around how immune and nervous systems communicate.
To move the needle in this frontier, they will undertake unbiased, systems-based, and technology forward approaches to comprehensively define neuroanatomic identity, map neuro-interactomes, and unveil functional neuroimmune memory across multiple mammalian organ systems. By systematically charting organ- and context-specific neuroimmune interactions, they hope to revolutionize our understanding of basic biological systems and advance an entirely new therapeutic paradigm in medicine.
