    Project Details

    Description

    The objective of the project is to establish the role of phagocytosis and micropinocytosis of microorganisms by antigen presenting cells in the immune response against the microorganism. Moreover, the project aims at identifying factors of importance for the initiation of phagocytosis and macropinocytosis, and elucidating cellular regulation pathways of importance for initiation and regulation of the response.
    Such basis mechanisms may be of importance for our understanding of why some infections lead to a strong and efficient elimination, whereas other may lead to chronic inflammation or tolerance.
