ANTIGEN PRESENTATION, RECOGNITION AND THE IMMUNE RESPONSE
Grant number: 1113293 | Funding period: 2017 - 2021
This program focuses on understanding the development of immunity during infection or inflammatory diseases using a broad array of techniques to dissect the function of various immune cell types and to explore the relationship between structure and function of important cell surface molecules. These studies will improve our ability to design new generation vaccines for combating infectious diseases, controlling cancer, or limiting autoimmune or inflammatory diseases.
