Summary Using new transgenic mice, this project will examine how lymphoid tissues expand and respond to infection, and how destruction of the tissue environment is regenerated by stromal cells.
In the wake of infectious disease, or following lymph node removal, there is little evidence that lymph nodes can regenerate. Lymphoid organs are constructed from heterogeneous subsets of stromal cells that control immune cell survival and immune responses. Using new transgenic mice, this project will examine how lymphoid tissues expand and respond to infection, and how destruction of the tissue environment is regenerated by stromal cells. This will reveal new avenues to repair damage to lymphoid tissues and support immunity. Advanced multi-colour imaging, flow cytometry and molecular techniques will be used to address these questions.
