Studies in the Blum laboratory are focused on understanding the intracellular reactions required for antigen processing and display by class II histocompatibility proteins. Several projects are examining the role of cell stress including ROS and autophagy in modulating host immune recogntion and responses to tumors, autoantigens and pathogens. Work is also underway to examine the role of myeloid cells in promoting and conversely, suppressing host immunity.
