Research Research groups Chemical immunology

About this research group

This group studies chemical biology in which one focus is on the targeting of Dendritic Cells in vivo by exploiting an poly (lactic-glycolic acid) PLGA nano bead platform to develop new synthetic vaccines. Another focus is on developing synthetic Dendritic Cells to directly activate T cells.

Much emphasis is paid to get molecular and structural insight in the immunological -synapse between dendritic cells and T cells, which is studied by a variety of techniques.
