The ImmuneWatch Logo

History

ImmuneWatch builds upon years of multi-disciplinary collaborations between clinicians and data scientists at the University of Antwerp (Belgium) and Antwerp University Hospital (Belgium).

Its scientific founders have a long scientific publication track-record and extensive expertise in biomolecular data mining, medical artificial intelligence and computational immunology.

ImmuneWatch has grown from these foundations, and maintains a strong connection to its academic roots. Together, we keep pushing the scientific boundaries of transforming T-cell repertoire data into actionable insights.
