antigen presentation, cytokines, dendritic cells, vaccines
Dendritic cells (DCs) are the antigen presenting cells that initiate and regulate immunity. By studying these cells in vivo, we will be able to move beyond standard approaches and design vaccines that directly harness the elaborate properties of DCs to control immunity.
