Role of the SET-like domain of Blimp-1 in plasma cell function and Immunoglobulin Secretion

Dr. Roger Sciammas recently received a two year grant from the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID), NIH to study the “Role of the SET-like domain of Blimp-1 in plasma cell function and Immunoglobulin Secretion”.  Secreted antibodies are primary immunological proteins important for protection to microbial agents yet pathological if produced in excess. Because of this balance, the control of secretion is tightly regulated.
