Project

“Intravital imaging of naturally occurring Tregs in the thymus”


Brief description

In my project I will image naturally occurring Tregs inside a living thymus using a multi-photon microscope. The observation of cell-cell contacts between “wanna-be” Tregs and dendritic cells after different in vivo stimulation of thymocytes is a new approach to better understand nTregs generation.

Project

“Effect of different types of Tregs in Experimental Autoimmune Encephalomyelitis (EAE)”


Brief description

Tregs are necessary to suppress the immune response against self-antigens. In my project I will compare the effect of MBP-specific Tregs versus Polyclonal-specific Tregs in the control of spontaneous EAE development and suppression of Th1/Th17 cells.
