$17 million grant will explore immune cells in inaccessible tissues of the human body

University of Alabama at Birmingham

Researchers will receive $17.8 million in federal funding to attack a key “knowledge gap” in human immunology — how B cells and antibody-secreting cells that reside in tissues and organs differ from those found in blood. It is an exploration never undertaken in a systematic way.

To respond or tolerate? LJI researchers selectively block immune activation program orchestrated by the nuclear factor NFAT

La Jolla Institute for Immunology

The immune system occasionally makes mistakes that require correction. For example, in autoimmunity, T-cells lose "immune tolerance" of self and can destroy one's very own tissues. Conversely, in cancer, the immune system can rapidly exhaust itself in the face of tumor antigens and become unresponsive, allowing tumors to thrive.
