  • The overall goal of our research is to understand how a compromised immune
    system leads to immunodeficiency with high incidence of autoimmunity and
    hematological cancers. We have a particular focus on how inborn mutations in
    actin regulators affect immune cell-cell communication, trafficking, and
    maintenance of genomic stability. Our research aims at revealing critical
    mechanisms for correct regulation of the immune system in health and disease
    and to identifying new targets for therapy.
