Current research topics and teams
(AG Wienands)

The research group of Prof. Dr. Jürgen Wienands integrates three research teams to illuminate signaling pathways involved in B lymphocyte activation and the overall regulation of humoral immunity.
The antibody mediated immune response (humoral immunity) is initiated due to the stimulation of B lymphocytes via their antigen receptor (BCR). The major research objective of Jürgen Wienandsí group is the molecular analysis of BCR mediated signaling processes that lead to B cell differentiation and antibody secretion. Dysfunctions in these mechanisms may lead to immune deficiency and B cell leukemia, thus rendering research in this area significant to the comprehension of human diseases.
