Getting to the Heart of the Matter

When a patient is given an unexpected and rare diagnosis, it begs an important question – what’s really going on?

By investigating how infections impact immunosuppressed populations, Tiffany’s work reveals the importance of understanding how our immune systems are comprised.

Why Informatics? It gets to the heart of what's going on so we can effectively treat patients.
