If an organism reacts to a stimulus, such as during host-parasite interactions, a dynamic interplay of various cells is triggered. Immune cells, as well as non-hematopoietic cells, initiate, maintain, coordinate and terminate an immune reaction. In order to understand these dynamic cellular interactions on a molecular level, the lab of Anja Hauser is developing and applying novel imaging approaches. Our interests include the analysis of the impact of the microenvironmental factors, including mechanical stimuli, on tissue-specific immunity. Methods we are using include functional intravital microscopy, the detection of rare immune cells in tissues by multiplexed histology, and the analysis of those tissue microenvironments with spatial transcriptomics.
