Scientific Interest and Avenues for Collaboration I am interested in the homeostasis of antibody-secreting plasmablasts and plasma cells and how their regulation relates to the stability of protective and harmful antibody titers. I pursue this in the context of therapy of rheumatic diseases, where autoreactive B cell memory represents an important obstacle. My research involves cutting edge flow cytometry and, more recently, novel mass cytometry, which I have developed new reagents and cell sample multiplexing suitable for immune phenotyping studies. I employ mass cytometry to capture the heterogeneity of cellular entities, and for predictive biomarker/biosignature identification in chronic inflammatory diseases./p>
