Cambridge Immunology Network



Research assistant to Dr Michelle Linterman

At present I am involved in the projects looking at the germinal cell response which is a key factor for production of high affinity antibodies and generation of immunological memory. I get involved with histology and immunohistochemistry for generating quality data representing and validating the results obtained by FACS.

spleen col

Spleen section from immunised mice at day7 stained with  an anti-IgD(red) , anti Bcl6 (green), an anti CD4 (blue) and Foxp3 (white).The B cell follicle is stained with an anti-IgD. CD4+ Foxp3+  regulatory T cells (T-regs) can be seen at the T-B  border.
