NYSCF Innovator Untangles Sustained Immunity

NYSCF – Robertson Stem Cell Investigator Dr. Deepta Bhattacharya, Washington University School of Medicine, published his latest work exploring the metabolic properties that allow for a sustained immune response after infection or immunization. The research describes how a combination of glucose uptake and mitochondrial pyruvate import allow a specific type of plasma cell to sustain durable antibody production.

Understanding the exact mechanisms of immunity and immune response will allow for new treatments for autoimmune and immune-related disorders.
