The Department of Physiology would like to congratulate the Mandl Lab on their recent publication in Nature Immunology entitled "Migration-induced cell shattering due to DOCK8 deficiency causes a type 2–biased helper T cell response." The study, lead by Dr. Judith Mandl, sheds light on cellular processes that may lead to allergic immune responses and identifies a possible link between cell death and allergic disease. Great work!
