research description:

Induction of immunological memory is the basis of vaccinations but the molecular mechanisms underlying the development and maintenance of memory T cells is not well understood. Our research is focused on understanding how signaling pathways and transcriptional factors control the effector T cell fate: terminal differentiation and apoptosis versus survival and differentiation into long-lived memory T cells. We are particularly interested in understanding the PI3K/FoxO/mTOR axis in the differentiation of memory CD8 T cells.
