B cell trafficking and activation in the splenic environment

The spleen is the largest secondary lymphoid organ. It filters the blood and screens for systemically disseminated pathogens. Most of the blood that passes through the spleen first reaches the marginal zone, a dynamic area of blood flow, antigen capture and lymphocyte trafficking. Our studies focus on understanding how interactions between marginal-zone resident cells and recirculating lymphocytes occur within this unique environment and how these events impact antibody responses.
