iPRIME Investigators have partnered with colleagues from the La Jolla Institute (LJI) to utilize single cell multi-omic analysis of human circulating immune cells to identify the B cell subtype in humans that is associated with IgE sensitization to alpha gal and increased cardiovascular disease (CVD). This pioneering research was published this year in Frontiers in Cardiovascular Medicine with Tanyaporn (Oom) Pattarabanjird as the first author.  Oom is an MD/PhD student in the Department of Biomedical Engineering and the Beirne B. Carter Center for Immunology Research.  Oom is also the winner of the 2021 National AHA Emerging Scientist Award for Women and the UVA Michael J. Peach Outstanding Graduate Student Award, demonstrating iPRIME’s impact on the future of precision immunomedicine.  Details of this work can be found at the following link:  https://pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/35097011/
