About us

Our research group is interested in cell-cell recognition processes, i.e., how the immune cells, for example, NK cells, recognize by receptors expressed on their surface the target proteins expressed on the surface of healthy cells or of the tumour, virally infected, or stressed cells. We are interested firstly in the structure-function relationship, using a wide range of modern methods of research of protein structure, their properties and interactions, and secondly, how we could transfer the gained knowledge into a practical level, besides other things by designing artificial protein constructs which would help the immune cells to recognize better and eliminate the target cells.
