About the speaker

Dr Adriana Tomic, a Marie Curie Fellow and systems immunologist, is applying machine learning to understand how vaccines work, specifically focused on human immunology and data-driven research. Co-developer of SIMON, an open source platform for the application of machine learning to biological and clinical data.

Her research focus is to understand the immunogenicity of the live attenuated influenza vaccine in children using systems immunology approach and SIMON, our recently developed machine learning tool. This approach holds promise to reveal the influenza vaccine imprint (FluPRINT) on immune system.

If you want to learn more, please check out the website dedicated to the project at fluprint.com. If you are interested to know more about SIMON, the machine learning pipeline and take part in the open source society dedicated to make SIMON free for everyone please visit genular.com.
