Come and discover how the Immune Cell Biology research team at Malaghan Institute of Medical Research (MIMR) study the wonderment of dendritic cells, our immunity and allergies with MIMR scientist Ruby White.
Do you know dendritic cells are and what their function is? Dendritic cells act as messengers between the innate and the adaptive immune systems and are ideal targets for the development of immunotherapies for diseases such as cancer, where a more powerful immune activation might result in the control of tumour growth, or allergy and autoimmune disease, where dendritic cells play an important role in local inflammation.
The Immune Cell Biology research team at MIMR question what signals instruct dendritic cells to initiate allergic immune responses and whether dendritic cells are targeted to specifically reduce allergic inflammation with minimal effects on other immune responses.
