Prof. Kurts and his group are interested in the mechanisms governing antigen-presentation and the ensuing immune response in the defense against infections and in immune mediated disease. Their main research projects focus on the mechanisms of antigen cross-presentation to cytotoxic CD8 T cells, peripheral immune tolerance of T and B lymphocytes against self antigens, and the role of dendritic cells in diseases, especially in kidney disease.
