Dynamic nanolandscape of immune receptors

Group Association:

Description of Activities:

Our aim is to exploit state-of-the-art optical nanoscopy to unravel the nanolandscape of cells of the immune system and get dynamic information of the cell surface organization of cellular receptors and subsequent signalling pathways at the nanometer level. In particularly in the immune system, which defends our body against pathogens, recognition and elimination of nanometer-sized pathogens is regulated through complex cell signaling and cell communication to ensure a swift and effective protective response. Understanding how these cell surface processes are orchestrated at the molecular level on living cells is at the core of this project.
