Dr. Stamatatos’ s Lab investigates B cell responses to infection and vaccination. We are particularly interested in monitoring the activation, survival, and maturation of B cell clonal lineages that produce protective antibodies against infectious agents. New immunogens and immunization regiments are developed to target these B cell lineages and are tested in vivo. The Lab employs diverse experimental approaches, including structure-based immunogen-design, X-ray crystallography, next generation deep sequencing, and immunological, molecular, and cellular techniques. The Lab’s work encompasses the entire space between pre-clinical and clinical evaluation of candidate vaccines.
