B Cell Receptor Repertoires and Functional Analysis
The Boyd lab studies healthy and pathogenic human immune responses in the context of vaccination, infectious diseases, and allergy, using a combination of antigen receptor sequence analysis, antibody functional characterization, and cellular immunology experiments. We are located in the Department of Pathology, and are members of the Sean N. Parker Center for Allergy and Asthma Research, the Computational Immunology Graduate Program, BioX, the Maternal and Child Health Research Institute, and the Stanford Cancer Center at Stanford University.
