Natural Killer (NK) cells constitute the body’s first line of innate immunity against viral infections and tumour development. Their response is regulated by immune receptors on the cell membrane of which the Killer Immunoglobin-like Receptors (KIR) are one of the most important families. Because all individuals have their own KIR gene repertoire, the way in which the NK cells of each individual react to threats is potentially unique. The aim of Sanne Vendelbosch’s research is to provide insight into the genetics and function of the human KIR family and its individual members to understand their role in disease and immunity.
