Lymphocyte Activation Lab

Lymphocyte Activation Lab


T and B lymphocytes, vital for our health, form the adaptive immune system. We investigate the regulation of B lymphocyte activation that mounts specific and highly effective antibody responses against pathogens. However, if lymphocyte activation is defected, we face pathological conditions such as autoimmunity or lymphoma. In our research, we integrate advanced light microscopy and proteomic approaches with cellular and in vivo models, to gain novel understanding on the cell biological phenomena of B cell activation.

Our work would not be possible without the critical support from these organizations:
