To gain a better understanding of the interaction between genes and the environment in the human immune response, Joost van Tongeren investigates whether the reaction to controlled environmental factors is influenced by individual differences between people. He also describes how different environmental factors influence each other and how interactions between genes and the environment affect the initiation or regulation of the immune response. He uses the immune response in human nasal epithelial cells as his model.
