Asian Immune Diversity Atlas
Asian donors are underrepresented in the Human Cell Atlas. To address this imbalance, this network aims to build an atlas of Asian immune cell types and states and characterize differences between six major Asian population groups (Chinese, Japanese, Korean, Indian, Malay, Thai). These datasets will eventually be used to complement data from disease cohorts relevant to respective local communities in order to identify disease markers and mechanisms.
This Network was awarded the CZI Seed Networks Incentive to Support Diversity for the Human Cell Atlas.
