Welcome to the Jumping Frog Lab
The overall goal of our research is to understand the co-evolutionary relationships between the structure of selected molecules (e.g., non-classical MHC class Ib molecules) and their functions in innate and adaptive immunity against tumors and viruses using the frog Xenopus as animal model.
