The Biostatistics Platform provides researchers within the Ragon Institute with expertise in planning, conducting, and analyzing research.
The Cellular Immunology Database is a centralized and secure database essential to the Ragon’s clinical coordinators, central processing lab, regulatory and research staff.
The Clinical Platform recruits and enrolls subjects into Ragon specimen collection studies and first-in-human clinical trials.
The Processing Lab processes clinical samples so they can be studied by researchers across the Ragon Institute.
The Protein Production team produces recombinant proteins, such as the SARS-CoV-2 spike protein, upon request to Ragon Members and Core Members.
The System Serology Lab focuses on the development of biological tools to determine individual antibody responses to a number of infectious diseases, such as HIV, Ebola virus, Mycobacterium tuberculosis, malaria, and SARS-CoV-2. This approached, deemed Systems Serology, allows us to understand what specific antibody features track with favorable patient outcomes as they battle infection with these diseases.
The Tissue Platform supports research of tissue-specific immunity and human disease. The team provides fresh and fixed tissue samples for research and training for the processing of human samples.
Laboratory mouse work is an essential aspect of the scientific process, and the Ragon Institute is committed to using mice responsibly and ethically.
