Analysis of immune responses upon aging

The function of the immune system declines with age. This is the main cause for the increased susceptibility to infections and the low effectiveness of vaccination in the elderly. To restore adequate immune responses in older adults new approaches are indispensable.
Thus, I investigate the age related changes of the immune system and further explore the effects of the rejuvenation of the hematopoietic system on immune response. Thereby, my efforts concentrate on the B- and T-cell compartment and on new approaches to improve vaccination in the elderly.
