Dissecting innate responses of dendritic cells to bood-stage and pre-blood-stage Plasmodium falciparum


Dendritic cell responses to Plasmodium falciparum will be characterized in various genetic backgrounds using a newly-established cell culture model-system and human primary cells. In addition to standard immunology readouts (ELISA, FACS), single-cell whole-transcriptome analysis will afford insights into heterogeneous activation profiles of DCs after plasmodium challenge.
