"Our goal is to contribute to the understanding of early immune mechanisms that underly common skin diseases and to identify how skin-specific Dendritic Cell populations shape these immune responses in a beneficial or detrimental way."
We have recently characterized the developmental requirements and functional role of a skin-specific population of dermal dendritic cells, which can be identified by their low expression of CD11b and develops in response to homeostatic levels of IL-13 in healthy skin (https://www.nature.com/articles/s41590-021-01067-0).
