Additional Information

Albert Bendelac studies the cell biology and immunology of lipid antigens. His group focuses on the interactions between NKT cells, a conserved lineage of glycolipid-specific lymphocytes, and CD1, a family of major histocompatibility (MHC)-like molecules that bind various self and microbial lipids in the endosomal compartment for presentation at the plasma membrane.
