Speaker Profile

Ph.D., Director of Immunomics, Microsoft Healthcare

Jonathan Carlson leads a team of engineers and AI researchers at Microsoft Healthcare. The team focuses on modeling and mapping T-cells to their cognate antigens, with the aim of developing diagnostics and therapeutics based on measured and inferred immune repertoire specificity. As a researcher at Microsoft, he has published broadly in the areas of virology and immunology, largely through the lens of modeling within-host virus evolution. He is the recipient of the 2017 Bonnie Mathieson Young Investigator Award for outstanding research in HIV vaccines, and the 2009 University of Washington and US Council of Graduate Schools (finalist) Distinguished Dissertation Awards. Dr. Carlson received his A.B. in Biology and Computer Science from Dartmouth College in 2003, and his Ph.D. in computer science and engineering from the University of Washington in 2009.

Immunotherapy Showcase: Microsoft Healthcare
Microsoft enables digital transformation for the era of an intelligent cloud and an intelligent edge.

The Antigen Map Project
Microsoft and Adaptive Biotechnologies are mapping T-cell receptors to antigens using immunosequencing, high-throughput T-cell assays, and cloud-scale AI. The project aims to develop new diagnostics and therapeutics for cancers, pathogens, and autoimmune diseases.
