Remarks / more information:

undefinedMark Davis is interested in how T and B lymphocytes recognize specific antigens. This interest includes the structural and biochemical underpinnings of T cell receptor binding and signal transduction and the dynamics of molecular movement at the T cell/antigen-presenting cell interface. He is also interested in the unique challenges of (and solutions to) studying the human immune system, particularly in the context of infectious diseases and vaccination strategies.
