Research Description


Interactions between activated T and B cells are required for the induction of an effective T dependent humoral immune response. My research focuses on elucidating the factors in vivo that influence the productivity of these interactions, particularly those that affect B cell activation and differentiation, such as B cell receptor affinity for antigen, antigen dose, amount of peptide presented to helper T cells, and availability and timing of T cell help.
