- Research interests
Antibodies, antigens and B cells involved in the TH2 immune response. The focus is on the B cell response to 'weak' antigens, i.e. antigens lacking signals that activate the innate immune system. The working hypothesis is that such an immune response is less tightly regulated. The IgE response to classical atopic allergens (pollen, mites, etc) is considered to be a prototypic example.
Immunochemical and biochemical procedures related to antigens and antibodies (natural and recombinant), including radioimmunoassays for antibodies, allergens and other antigens; in-silico analysis of the structure of antibodies and allergens.
