Damien Chaussabel, Ph.D.

Principal Computational Scientist

Development of approaches and resources for the analysis, visualization and functional interpretation of large-scale immunological profiling datasets.

My research has focused on blood transcriptomics and its application in patient-based research. My primary role at the Jackson Laboratory is to support the development of systems immunology and immunoinformatic research capacity – including through the implementation of training programs and the support of projects and investigators conducting immunology research at Jax.
