IMP student identifies new drivers of plasmablast development

How do the cells that defend us against pathogens develop? Theresa Pinter, PhD student in the lab of Meinrad Busslinger, investigates the molecules that dictate the development of plasmablasts, our first line of defence against infections. In a study now published in the journal Frontiers in Immunology, Theresa and colleagues screened 3,000 genes and identified novel factors that affect the development of plasmablasts.
