Research Overview

B lymphocytes represent the white blood cells that produce antibodies and that play an important role in immune responses against foreign antigens (e.g. bacteria). In rare instances, B lymphocytes may undergo malignant transformation and become tumour cells. Such tumours are called B cell lymphomas or leukemias. The main research topics of the group are:

  • Investigation of B cell differentiation and function in the human
  • The interplay of B cells with viruses (EBV, HCV, HIV)
  • Pathogenesis of human B cell lymphomas, in particular Hodgkin lymphoma
