"Molecular cues guiding immune cell migration dynamics”
Jason Cyster is a Professor in the Department of Microbiology and Immunology at the University of California, San Francisco. Cyster is an Immunologist recognized for his work on the cues guiding immune cell movements in lymphoid organs and for defining the mechanism of lymphocyte egress from tissues.
His lab studies how cells and antigens come together to generate immune responses. This involves a focus on deciphering the cues that guide immune cell movements within, and egress from, lymphoid organs. Furthermore, his lab has a strong interest in understanding how cell interaction dynamics influence the selection events underlying antibody affinity maturation. For visualizing immune response dynamics they use advanced imaging and cell engineering approaches allowing in vivo quantitation of cell-cell interaction and cell signaling in germinal centers.
