Our goal is to discover how human immune cells migrate into tissues, how they are regulated locally and release their effector mechanisms. To analyze these events, we use and develop advanced in vitro models that recapitulate the complex in vivo network of cells, soluble factors and extracellular matrix.

Specifically, we focus on:

·        Microphysiological and microfluidic organ-on-a-chip systems

·        T cell migration, residency and adaptation to the tissue microenvironment

·        Advanced 2D and 3D cell culture models for the preclinical testing of cellular ATMPs
