Antibody Repertoire Diversity

Antibody repertoire diversity and its role during natural infection is a prerequisite for molecular and structural elucidation of functionally protective immunity. Discover the latest insights into antibody diversity here.

Genetics of Killer-cell Immunoglobulin-like Receptors

Killer-cell immunoglobulin-like receptors (KIRs) are expressed on NK cells and a subset of T cells and mediate inhibition or activation of cytotoxic activity. KIRs are highly polymorphic and the ability to sequence and phenotype these variations may lead to a better understanding of various infectious and autoimmune pathologies. Find the latest research on KIRs here.

Immunogenetics of Rheumatoid Arthritis

Rheumatoid arthritis is an autoimmune disease for which over 100 genetic risk loci have been identified. Genes involved in T cell receptor signalling, the JAK-STAT signalling pathway, and NF-kB signalling are enriched. Find the latest research on the immunogenetics of rheumatoid arthritis here.

Immunogenetics of Systemic Lupus Erythematosus

SLE is an autoimmune disease whose cause remains unclear and for which only symptomatic treatments currently exist. Linking the genetic and epigenetic assocations to molecular pathways and cellular phenotype is required to understand this disease and advance therapeutics.
