The IRIS team is headed by Nathalie Cools.
The IRIS team performs research on dendritic cells. On the one hand IRIS investigates distribution, phenotype and the function of DC subtypes and how the contribute to disruption of homeostasis between immunity and tolerant in diseases. On the other hand IRIS investigates tolerogenic dendritic cells (fundamental and translational) with a special focus on Multiple Scleroses. IRIS does, same as the TIGr group, studies in collaboration with the other 2 laboratories of VAXINFECTIO. There are also collaborations with dermatology, immunology, cardiology, pharmacology and gastroenterology.
