We study the pathogenic adaptive immune responses involved in development of CNS autoimmunity. Our focus is to understand how B and T cells cooperate to induce and propagate disease. We employ spontaneous as well as transfer animal models of Multiple sclerosis to investigate and manipulate pathogenic processes in the periphery and in the CNS. In addition, our methods include primary cell culture, flow cytometry, molecular biology techniques, and confocal microscopy. We collaborate with colleagues on in vivo microscopy and NGS. Read more...
