The synthetic immunology aims at the synthesis of the immune system from any perspectives. Topics discussed in this workshop include (1) design, reconstitution, and regeneration of immune organs, (2) simulation and synthesis of artificial immune tissues and immunological devices, and (3) human application of synthetic immunology.

Studies using wide range of technology including molecular and cellular biology, bioinformatics, computer simulation, robotics, and other engineering are welcome.

Synthetic immunology研究会は、「免疫システムのシンセシス」を目標に、さまざまな技術背景の研究者が集まって、免疫システムの自在な制御をめざして議論を進めるための研究会です。主な議論対象としては、(1)免疫器官の再生や再構築、(2)人工免疫組織や人工免疫装置の設計や合成、(3)免疫シンセシスのヒトへの応用、を念頭に置いています。免疫学や組織工学をはじめ、数理モデルやロボット工学など多種多様な技術的背景からのご参加を歓迎しております。
