    Bio My research interests center on understanding how dendritic cells (DCs) regulate the immune response. Specifically we are interested in the role of DC trafficking in inflammation and in the maintenance of immune homeostasis and tolerance. To understand these processes, we are examining the mechanisms of DC homing to sites of immune tolerance such as (i) the thymus-the site of central tolerance, and (ii) the gut mucosa-where immune responses to commensal and ingested antigens (Ags) are shut down. We are also interested in understanding how microenvironmental tissue factors influence DC development and their ability to imprint unique homing properties on T cells. DCs are unique messenger white blood cells of the mammalian immune system. They function as specialized antigen-presenting cells (APCs), whose main function is to process and transport Ags and microenvironmental signals from the tissues to the draining lymph nodes for presentation to T cells. In the last decade, a large number of DC subsets have been characterized in part defined by their expression of unique trafficking and adhesion receptors, and migratory properties. We therefore would like to understand how these trafficking and adhesion receptors define their function and phenotype and how they are regulated by the tissue microenvironment, with the hope of targeting unique DC subsets to suppress chronic inflammation or to improve anti-tumor responses in immunotherapy.

  • Felix Hartmann

    Felix Hartmann

    Postdoctoral Research Fellow, Pathology

    Bio Dr. Hartmann received a B.Sc. and M.Sc. in Molecular Biotechnology from the University of Heidelberg, Germany. During his M.Sc. studies, he additionally performed a research internship studying the role of chimeric antigen receptor (CAR) T cells at the Weizmann Institute in Israel under the supervision of Prof. Zelig Eshhar.
    He then obtained a PhD from the University of Zurich, Switzerland for his research on T cell functionality in human autoimmune diseases. Following his stay in Zurich, Dr. Hartmann has since performed his postdoctoral training in the laboratory of Dr. Sean Bendall, with funding from the Swiss National Science Foundation (SNF), the Novartis Foundation for biomedical research, and EMBO.

    His current research focuses on using high-dimensional protein assays such as mass cytometry (CyTOF) and multiplexed ion beam imaging (MIBI) to study functional properties of immune cells in autoimmunity and cancer immunotherapy.

    Florette K. Gray Hazard

    Associate Professor of Pathology and of Pediatrics at the Stanford University Medical Center

    Current Research and Scholarly Interests My scholarly pursuits are primarily focused on the study of death and disease in the pediatric population. It is through this work that I am able to explore fundamental concepts of neoplasia, such as histogenesis and mutagenesis, while utilizing a variety of investigational techniques.
