We study genes that control the immune response. We are particularly interested in the biology of natural killer (NK) cells.

Selected Projects

  • Genetic diversity and function of NK cell receptors and MHC class I of non-human primates
  • Function of human NK cell receptors
  • Transcriptomic analyses of NK cells and other innate lymphoid cells (ILC)


  • Next-generation sequencing (RNA-seq, Amplicon seq, ATAC-seq)
  • Single cell genomics (RNA-seq)
  • Bioinformatic analyses of NGS data
  • Flow cytometry
  • Establishment and usage of monoclonal antibodies
  • Biochemical methods (affinity chromatography, binding assays)
  • Immunological assays
