Dendritic Cell Receptors

Welcome to the Lahoud Lab

Our research focus is understanding how the sentinels of the immune system, the dendritic cells (DC), sense and respond to “danger” in their environment, and to use this knowledge for improving vaccines and immunotherapies.

We're part of the Monash Biomedicine Discovery Institute, and a member of the Infection and Immunity and Cancer Programs and the Department of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology.

Our research

Our research focus is understanding how the sentinels of the immune system, the dendritic cells (DC), sense and respond to “danger” in their environment, and to use this knowledge for improving vaccines and immunotherapies. DC have an array of receptors designed to detect pathogen associated and damage-associated molecular patterns. These receptors enable DC to sense invading pathogens or other danger (eg. damaged or dead cells) and to direct the type of protective immune response required.
