My research is focused on human Dendritic cells (DCs), a specialized family of antigen presenting cells that elicit immunity to infections and tolerance to self. DCs are composed of subsets endowed with unique functional properties. We plan to unravel the mechanisms that by which distinct human DC subsets control immunity and tolerance, and use this information to devise immune strategies for therapeutic intervention in tumors.
