Decoding immune function at the atomic level
Research at the Sgourakis Lab sheds light on the dynamic molecular processes which determine immune recognition, signaling and the formation of long-term memory against viral, tumor and autoimmune targets.
To address these questions, we integrate cutting-edge structural biology tools from (NMR) Nuclear Magnetic Resonance Spectroscopy, X-ray crystallography with complementary biophysical and biochemical techniques, computational modeling and functional assays. Sgourakis lab’s efforts are done in close collaboration with the vibrant research community at Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia (CHOP) and the University of Pennsylvania (UPENN).
