Research Interests

The Stamatatos Lab investigates B cell responses to infection and vaccination. They monitor the activation, survival and maturation of B cell clonal lineages that produce protective antibodies against infectious agents. Immunogens are developed to target these B cell lineages in vivo.

Their work encompasses the entire space between pre-clinical and clinical evaluation of candidate vaccines.
