Deciphering human B cells complexity in health and disease
Dr Marasco will report his experience on the study of B cell functions in infancy and throughout childhood and show how the proliferative potential, plasmablast differentiation and immunoglobulin secretion of B cell subsets can be reliably assessed in children through T-independent activation by the TLR9 agonist CpG.
