MIST aims to
1) gather researchers from various institutions with enthusiastic goals to resolve the central paradox of multicellular biology with high-throughput technologies (e.g., genomics, transcriptomics, proteomics, metabolomics, bioinformatics) to understand the flow of information that underlies the causative changes that are behind complex phenotypes both “healthy” and “disease” and
2) to serve as an interconnected network for researchers joined by a mutual interest in a highly complex and dynamic immune system. The new “The Multiverse of Immune system” program will further strengthen the local research communities, such as the InFLAMES flagship program. Besides locally, the program also promotes collaboration with other national and international universities, research institutes, and companies, which is vital for high-profile international programs and funding.
