My project will be studying CD4 T cell help to B cells. This involves better understanding what B cell help functions each CD4 T cell subset provides. More specifically, we will determine how each subset influences germinal center/memory B cell formation and isotype switching. While many of these questions have been answered, previous work heavily relied on in vitro data or the use of transgenic systems. We would like to reanswer these basic CD4 T cell biology questions in vivo using an antigen-specific endogenously derived polyclonal system.
