Immunology of infectious diseases

The main interest of the laboratory lies in understanding how the adaptive immune response is regulated during chronic infections. We are currently focussing on three topics:


1. The development of effector and memory CD8 T-cell responses during chronic infections

We are mainly interested in molecular pathways governing early priming events, induction and maintenance of effector CD8 T-cell responses, and the generation of memory cells.


2. The regulation of CD4 T cell responses during chronic infection

Particular interest is given to immune suppressive pathways operating during chronic infections and aiming at inhibiting CD4 T cell responses.


3. The mechanisms of induction of hypergammaglobulinemia by the protozoan parasite Leishmania donovani

We seek to identify pathways triggered by L. donovani that lead to polyclonal B cell activation and ultimately to hypergammaglobulinemia.
