FcRg-deficient human NK cells with protein Ab-dependent, anti-viral responsiveness

Dr. Sungjin Kim was awarded a five year grant from the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, NIH.  Recently, we have identified a novel subset of human natural killer (NK) cells that have potent anti-viral activity. The proposed study will address how these NK cells are generated and maintained, and how they function better than conventional NK cells.
