We are very happy that our head of laboratories, Dr. Ulrik Stervbo, has been elected co-lead of the Diagnostics Working Group of the Adaptive Immune Receptor Repertoire (AIRR) Community. The other co-lead is Dr. Susanna Marquez of Yale University. The two leads are elected for 1.5 years.
The AIRR Community comprises a multidisciplinary group of several hundred stakeholders who are dedicated to the development of methods and standards for the generation, analysis and sharing of AIRR-seq data. The overarching aim of the diagnostic working group is to coordinate the efforts of the AIRR Community about the clinical application of immune receptors analysis and their repertoires. The Working Group further strives to become an advertising body to regulatory authorities and to connect key opinion leaders.
