Kennedy Trust of Rheumatology Research (KTRR) Senior Research Fellow
My PhD, at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem with Professor Ofer Mandelboim, focused on understanding how human natural killer cells recognize and eliminate virally infected cells.
As a postdoctoral fellow, in the University of California San Francisco with Professor Jason Cyster, I moved on to investigate mechanisms that regulate lymphocytes trafficking in vivo.
By developing advanced imaging methods using 2-photon microscopy our studies helped to understand the importance of specialized niches within the spleen in regulating immune cell migration and function.
In January 2014, I joined the Kennedy Institute as a Senior Research Fellow. In our current work, we continue to explore the unique features of splenic immune responses, focusing on the roles of specialized subsets of macrophages and innate immune cells in regulation of B cell behaviour.
