Transcription factors in dendritic cells


20June2018 10:00 - 11:00

PhD defence ceremony

Maaike Scheenstra investigates the expression and function of the transcription factors Gata 1 and PU.1 in dendritic cells. She studies the expression of these transcription factors as well as the genes that are regulated by them. Better understanding the mechanisms regulated by these transcription factors will bring us one step closer to improving engineering and dendritic cell manipulation, with the purpose of generating more efficient or longer-lived dendritic cells for immunotherapy.
