Adaptive Immunity and Homeostasis


The Laboratory for Adaptive Immunity and Homeostasis is studying the cellular processes and molecular interplay underlying the functions of the two most abundant proteins in the blood, albumin and IgG. By combining structural and biophysical approaches with cellular and in vivo studies, we use the insights to design novel albumin and IgG molecules with improved binding properties and cellular functions.
