Crime scene: working in the lab

Thema der Dissertation: Functional properties of human autoantibodies against MOG in MS and related diseases
Kommentar: While working in the lab I often get the impression of being an investigator like in a crime scene. Trying to find the perpetrator who causes the disease in different patients. Those patients suffer from demyelinating inflammations in the CNS. The immune system attacks its own body. Thereby, auto-antibodies are produced which recognize self-antigens and can induce an auto-immune reaction.
