    Galit Alter, PhD
    Professor of Medicine, Harvard Medical School
    Group Leader at the Ragon Institute of MGH, MIT and Harvard

    Dr. Alter’s work focuses on the development of systems biology tools to define the correlates of immunity against infectious diseases. She developed a novel, ever-evolving approach to probing humoral immunity that she termed ‘systems serology’. Dr. Alter uses this novel -omics platform to profile the remarkable diversity of antibodies generated in response to pathogens or vaccines and their abilities to leverage the immune system to fight disease.

    CME credit is available.
