Research interestsDendritic cells are the major antigen-presenting cell type and pivotal for the induction of adaptive immune responses. They are able to capture antigens in non-lymphoid tissues of the body periphery and transport this information to lymph nodes. The role of chemokines in this and other examples of immune cell migration was studied in detail in the last decades, the required fine-tuned regulation remains however unclear in many aspects. The aim of my Ph.D thesis in the lab of Dr. Tim Lämmermann is to investigate mechanisms that control the responsiveness of dendritic cells in situations of high or continuous chemokine stimulation.
