Abstract

To develop vaccines and to combat autoimmunity, we need to understand how initial immune activation influences the fate of immune cells and their progeny. To achieve this, we have developed microscopic techniques and analytical software with which to observe how initial signalling processes in the parent immune cell influence the death, proliferation and differentiation of its daughters, granddaughters and further progeny. We will use these approaches to determine how immune cell fate is control
