MLF: Decoding epigenetics and its implications for the immune response to COVID-19

Session Innovative COVID-19 diagnostics

With the aim of understanding the pathophysiology of COVID-19 and establishing biomarkers, we investigate the interaction of epigenetic modifications with the innate as well as the adaptive immune responses in hospitalized COVID-19 patients during the course of the disease. Here, we present histone modifications from PBMCs in COVID-19 patients as a promising entity to quickly create a characteristic biomarker profile with little use of samples, which is then related to the course of the disease.
