The immune system has two main arms of defence, innate and adaptive immunity. The B and T cells that form part of the adaptive immune system are only activated a couple of days after the primary infection. They recognise and respond to individual antigens by means of their surface antigen receptor. Martine van Keimpema investigates the molecular mechanisms underlying B cell non-Hodgkin lymphomas and Memory B cells.
